Lawrence Opera Theatre (LOT) lives by the saying, “If music be the food of love, play on” (Shakespeare). Our mission is to fill in the void of opera during the summer season in Lawrence, Topeka, and the KC metro region. We believe in the resounding power of music, words, and great art in opera, art song, and musical theatre.
Committed to enriching the cultural fabric, we extend a vibrant spectrum of music, drama, and cultural service to Lawrence, Douglas County, and the entirety of Kansas. LOT is dedicated to making opera accessible to all, ensuring that the transformative experience of this art form is inclusive and enjoyed by diverse audiences. We serve as a dynamic platform, empowering singing professionals, emerging vocal artists, and community singers to showcase their talents and cultivate invaluable professional experience.
