The mission of HHOT is to provide classically trained singers and instrumentalists in New England and upstate New York greater opportunities to create something beautiful close to home, while also giving rural audiences the chance to enjoy an opera without having to spend the night in a city to do so. We also enjoy providing young artists with the chance to perform key roles in a nurturing environment alongside experienced professionals.
