The Erie Opera Theatre, under the direction of Bruce Morton Wright, founded in 1984 through the financial support of Mr. Clarence E. Beyers, received its 501 (c) 3 non-profit status on December 10, 1995, and this status was reaffirmed on October 17, 2000. The EOT is dedicated to the presentation of full length, fully staged performances of musical works ranging from musical comedy, to light opera, to grand opera performances. These productions utilize the professional musicians of the EOT Orchestra, as well as the professional and non-professional artists and vocalists and volunteers from the Erie and tri-states areas. The EOT provides an outlet for performance and training for residents of the Erie area which otherwise would not be available for persons with an interest and talent for operatic performance. The EOT is a measure of the growth found in so many of today's American cities. The EOT presents an annual "Amahl and the Night."
