Welcome to the 2020 Winter Opera Festival

Love is in the Air.

Presented by Sarasota Opera February 27, 2020

Love can soothe as well as burn. Sometimes passionate, sometimes unrequited, love has permeated our dreams since the beginning of time. Join us at Sarasota Opera as we tell four timeless tales of indescribable love.

Puccini’s - La bohème

Love Is Fragile

Feb 8–Mar 21 

Almost two centuries ago in Paris’ Latin Quarter, a love affair flourishes, withers and dies in Puccini’s romantic portrayal of bohemian life. 

Gounod’s - Romeo & Juliet

Love Is Forever

Feb 15–Mar 20

In this story — immortalized by the genius of William Shakespeare and overflowing with the melodies of Charles Gounod — young lovers pursue their great passion to the grave.

Donizetti’s - The Elixir of Love

Love Is Intoxicating

Feb 22–Mar 21 

Nemorino’s love is unwavering, but Adina won’t give him a second glance. All is saved by Dulcamara’s love potion—or is it? 

Catalani’s - La Wally (New Production)

Love Hurts

Mar 7–Mar 22

In a village in the Tirolean alps, Wally chooses love over family. However, with a cruel bet, the man of her dreams breaks her heart, igniting a chain of events that leads to tragedy.

All opera performances take place in The William E. Schmidt Opera Theater. All operas performed in the original language with real-time English translations displayed above the stage.
