Much like a musical intermezzo—a light piece of music played between acts—Opera Theatre’s Intermezzo Society offers an opportunity to join a year-round OTSL community for fun, entertainment, and connection between OTSL performances, or between the “serious acts” of life. The Intermezzo Society is a group of professionals in and around St. Louis who are dedicated to supporting the arts while building their own communities. Intermezzo Society Members enjoy social events & behind-the-scenes access to OTSL throughout the year, are among the first to learn about upcoming productions, meet the company’s talented artists & creative teams—all while making new connections throughout the St. Louis community.
