Michigan Opera Theatre’s New Season to Feature Non-Traditional Performances
As we continue to follow social distancing guidelines, Michigan Opera Theatre is excited to announce that our upcoming season will feature a series of non-traditional performances! The season will be a temporary departure from MOT’s traditional format of presenting Grand Opera and large-cast dance productions, with new features including:

  • Alternate performance locations including outdoor settings and venues
  • Small scale productions with socially-distanced casts and dancers
  • Limited capacity, socially-distanced seating at the Detroit Opera House and other local venues.
