Believe it or not!... ...our computers were struck by lightning on September 18th (surge protectors not withstanding), and most of our website will have to be rebuilt from scratch. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in this matter. We are doing our best to get it up and running again as quickly as possible.
DON’T MISS THIS!
They’re going like hot cakes!

This season, more than ever before, we need your help in keeping Hudson Opera Theatre alive and thriving. So we’ve devised a little campaign in which everyone comes out a winner. But this will only succeed if everyone takes the challenge to heart. Everyone includes our casts, crews, chorus, orchestra, and most especially our audience members. It’s a simple plan and easy for everyone, but remember, it will only work if everyone does it...
Are you willing to take The Challenge?

“All that remains of communities and civilizations, all that remains of their worth and dignity exists in the art they leave.”
William Carlos Williams
Do you want to know what they mean when they say,
“Hudson Opera Theatre is HOT!”?
Here’s what a few critics mean...
Brahms Requiem (2012)
“...a glorious performance of this masterpiece...[an] uplifting, powerful presentation. Audience members rose to their feet in heartfelt appreciation...”
La Traviata (2005)
“Verdi’s music is almost overwhelming, with De Fesi pulling and pushing his wonderfully balanced and resonant orchestra and lively cast to reach as high as they could...”
Verdi’s “Aïda” (2012)
The eight principals... singers and dancers were well rehearsed and fully involved in the emotional melodrama. The sustained final standing ovation for the production proved that opera lovers had witnessed a memorable musical event.
Suor Angelica (1996)
“...an elegant and choice production... ...graceful, melodic and haunting in the best Puccini style.”
The Barber of Seville (2002)
“...it was a sparkling performance... with a number of extremely clever staging devices...”
Giulio Cesare (2006)
“He came, he saw, he conquered. Yes, Julius Cæsar, of course, but also Ron De Fesi in his role as artistic director. Under his direction, productions in the recent past have proved so noteworthy, that the site has become a mecca for rising opera singers.”
Argun Tekant and Heather Connolly in a moment from The Merry Widow.
