About

On April 4, 1930, Oklahoma City University presented its first musical production – Gilbert and Sullivan's HMS Pinafore. As OCU's talent pool and audiences grew over the next two decades, the university established the Oklahoma Opera and Music Theater Company. In 1951, it mounted the first of what has become 63 consecutive seasons of fully staged productions.

Now, after hundreds of performance of 130 different operas and musicals, we look back in gratitude at the half-million people who have attended shows on campus or on one of our international tours. We realize that the best way to build on the successes of the past is to confidently embrace the future. Our audiences enjoy the nation's most dynamic young performers, innovative stagings, and a repertoire that combines the comfort of the familiar with the thrill of the unexplored.
