Opera-Lytes is celebrating its 23rd year of bringing operetta and classic musical theater to audiences in Western New York. We are looking for advertisers to include in our 2016-2017 season playbill, which will be distributed to at least 1,500 audience members at our season's shows.
Opera-Lytes is a not-for-profit musical theater company founded in 1994 with the mission of bringing light opera, operetta and classic musical theater to audiences in Western New York. We are the only company in Buffalo dedicated to performing the works of Gilbert and Sullivan.
Opera-Lytes has an active education program, sending our own teaching artists into Western New York classrooms, staging special student matinees, and offering pre-curtain lectures on the history and relevance of operetta.
Opera-Lytes auditions are open to a wide range of singers. Productions feature professional singers in principal roles, along with a talented chorus of experienced adult performers mentoring aspiring high school and college students. All staged shows are accompanied by a chamber orchestra.
Opera-Lytes audiences are connected to their Western New York community and give back to the region by supporting the work of not-for-profit theater and musical groups—as well as the companies and organizations who share their cultural priorities.
