Owner description: Sarasota Opera continues to distinguish itself as one of the opera opera companies in the world. Season after season, Sarasota Opera presents world-class musicians and performances in the striking 1,119 seat Mediterranean style Sarasota Opera house. The fall season consists of one opera performed in October-November followed by the four opera Winter Opera Festival that runs all of February and March. Each season brings a mixture of classic favorites and rarely heard gems. All performances have simultaneous English translations above the stage and opera goers are encouraged to dress as they feel comfortable: suits and ties mix with khaki and jeans. Tickets start at only $19!! Come and experience the magic that is Sarasota Opera!

Sarasota Opera is a gem among other great cultural attractions in the area. The Opera House is charming and comfortable. Productions are quite expansive, especially considering the rather small stage. Performers may not be quite ready for the Met or Lyric, but might be soon. The addition of one production in the fall adds to the usual winter season. This is a must destination for anyone fortunate enough to get tickets.

I've had season's tickets for years, and I've always enjoyed the quality of the performances. The theater itself is wonderful. People travel to Sarasota just for opera season. If you haven't partaken of this pleasure, I highly recommend you do!

We are so lucky to have this beautiful Opera House in Sarasota. The productions are always exceptional. My one concern with the venue is that when they re did the Opera house I believe they put the seats too close to each other and their is a lack of ample leg room. This is especially noticeable in the longer productions. We try to get seats in the shorter aisles or at the end of the aisle.
