The Sarasota Opera

Sarasota Opera The Sarasota Opera is an internationally respected producer of the highest quality professional opera. Today the Sarasota Opera House plays host to everything from opera, symphony and classical ballet to film festivals, popular music concerts, comedy shows and clowns. The Opera House theater seats over 1,000 patrons.

The company has garnered international attention with its Masterwork Revivals Series, which presents neglected works of artistic merit, as well as the Verdi Cycle producing the complete works of Giuseppe Verdi.

Opera Mikido - The 3 Little Maids Recognizing the need for a theater, the company purchased the former A.B. Edwards Theater in downtown Sarasota in 1979. Renovations began in 1982 and the theater, now on the National Register of Historic Places, opened in 1984 as the Sarasota Opera House, the company it housed now being called Sarasota Opera.

The Sarasota Opera House has just completed a multi-million dollar renovation and restoration. The project restored the historic 1926 theater to its original glory, while creating a venue for opera for the 21st century. Decorative details have been restored, seating has been replaced, and the orchestra pit enlarged to allow for an expansion of the repertoire.
