Timeless Stories Come to Life...


Timeless Stories Come to Life...

Your breath catches as a voice joins instruments, low at first, then building as
stage lights illuminate the scene before you.

The curtain rises and reveals a world unlike anything you’ve seen before. No longer in a theater, you’re in a place and time you’ve only seen in movies or read about in books. You’ve gone to a place of imagination and wonder. You’re at the Opera.


Summer Concert series

In this episode of Behind the Curtain, Artistic Director Simon Holt discusses our educational outreach program, Kids Love Opera!, and what it means to local children throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island. Each spring, we send teams of singers and accompanists to dozens of elementary and middle schools across southeastern Connecticut and southern Rhode Island, presenting in-school workshops and educational enrichment to thousands of children!

To learn more about how this very special program is enriching classrooms and introducing Performing Arts to local students, visit https://www.saltmarshopera.org/school-programs/.

Compelling Performances...

Compelling Performances...

In Jack and Jill and the Happening Hill…13 performers recreate the story behind the classic childhood rhyme. They do it with such finesse and exuberance and joy that the simple story turns into an adventurous quest for both Jack and Jill.
— Denise Coffey, Hartford Courant
Salt Marsh Opera’s... ‘La Cenerentola’ (‘Cinderella’)... was far more than an exquisite evening of beautiful music from a top-notch cast. For twin sisters Gabrielle and Isabella Macaruso of Hopkinton, and their pal Lily Algieri, it was a life-changing event.
— Nancy Burns-Fusaro, The Westerly Sun
The vivid stage presences and vocal aplomb of Loyd and Cheney, the darkly ominous production and well-paced, mounting horror, and the musical thrills of the final act...conveyed the full weight of this most dramatic of operas.
