“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Surprising to see a town the size of Sarasota support such a great opera company. The theater offers great sound the the sarasota orchestra brings it all together. Order you tickets early as the snow birds and season holders will fill the room quickly.

Our first time at the Opera this year and we can't say enough how very impressed we are with the quality of the productions and the talent of the casts.The Opera House itself is a beautiful old building - perfect to showcase the talent within. Don't miss it!

“Opera makes Sarasota!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Without destruction of the very ambience of the building, sound,
seating, etc. the Opera House was made larger and now more
audience members can join in the Matinees or Evening performances - wonderful talents can be heard here! You depart with a feeling of magestry....even IF you claim NOT to enjoy this type of music, you'd do yourself harm NOT to attend
just one (1) performance & then stroll downtowne as the music
stirs in your blood vessels all thru the night.....

“The Met in Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

One of the finest small opera companies in the US. Great rep. with wonderful programming. Each season they have the classics as well as lesser performed pieces. Love it.
