2021-2022 Season

The Opera Theatre of Yale College (OTYC) is thrilled to present its 2021-2022 season. Be on the lookout for our upcoming performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance in March!

And in case you need a reminder of what we've done already this season...

FALL: We started our season with a bang, with the double bill production of Jonathan Bailey Holland's Always (identified by our repertoire research committee) and Gustav Holst's Savitri! This short double bill, exploring the theme of love in times of hardship and comparing stories across cultures, was performed in the Morse/Stiles Crescent Theatre. About a month later, OTYC performed the baroque opera The Judgement of Paris by John Eccles in the Saybrook Underbrook. This setting comprises one of four of the same William Congreve libretto for a 1701 competition. Though in the original competition, Eccles' setting came in second, when the competition was restaged 1989, Eccles was declared the posthumous winner.

WINTER: In December, OTYC performed a production of Kamala Sankaram's The Infinite Energy of Ada Lovelace. With a libretto by Rob Handel, this 45 minute chamber opera commissioned by Opera Ithaca considers the story of English mathematician and early computer scientist Ada Lovelace.

That's all! Please feel free to email max.hammond@yale.edu with any questions!
