Our Mission

OTO header

Opera Theater Oregon’s mission is to bring opera back into pop culture. Affordable, entertaining, and commonly available (bars, movie theaters, online), OTO helps more people connect with classical music in ways that feel relevant to their lives.

OTO is a 501c(3) tax exempt organization, IRS Section 170b(2)iii for both federal and state tax purposes. The company was founded in 2005 by Angela Niederloh and Amy Russell.

We rely on donations to continue to present alternative opera in Portland, proudly featuring local talent and nurturing the careers of emerging artists. Find out more about making a tax deductible donation to OTO today!
