This company brings first rate performers and musicians to Wooster for a summer season that is varied and entertaining. Some visitors come from all parts of the country year after year after year. Read the schedule and the reviews. If light opera is one of your interests this company is first rate.

The best thing that they have going is that you can see shows here that you will not see anywhere else. But usually they have no better production values than any average college production. their chorus is the only superior quality.

The talent, production quality and facility are wonderful. We will return. This is a gem in a quaint little college town. We were blown away by the soprano Friedlander.

Some of the best musical theatre in the Midwest. Be sure to see a show with Ted Christopher in the cast.

So lucky to get internet offer when I did. Wooster Food Tours was just getting started and they offered discount tickets to the opera. What a surprise to do this on short notice. Great tour director Sara took us to places we have never been and tried food we never had even though we have been to Wooster many times... More

High level singing, acting, and direction and energetic performances of old favorites and less commonly heard works. We saw 7 different shows in 4 days, ranging from My Fair Lady to Die Fledermaus and Victor Herbert's Dream City and the Magic King.

I love the opportunity that OLO offers to see rarities of musical theater with excellent staging, costumes and big voices. They deservedly got a Trip Advisor award this year.

My wife and I have attended the Ohio Light Opera twice. It presents a neglected repertoire in good professional productions. Wooster is convenient to Cincinnati (where we live), Columbus, and Cleveland. A matter of concern is that the Freedlander Theatre is not equipped with a hearing-assistance system, something which would be helpful to many patrons.

My Fair Lady was terrific in every way. The sets, the voices, the acting, the costumes all were excellent. I don't know when we've spent such an enjoyable afternoon. We came out smiling and humming. We have been wanting to make a visit to the Wooster in the summer to check out the light opera venue. We'll be back.
