The Maestro Series Continues!

St. Petersburg Opera’s Maestro Series provides a perfect gateway to understanding opera for both those new to the art form and seasoned opera-goers alike. These 90-minute programs are themed to enhance your experience in an engaging and entertaining way. Live performances by professional singers and instrumentalists accompany Maestro Mark Sforzini’s witty and insightful explorations of plot, character and musical devices. All programs end with a unique opportunity to mix and mingle with the cast.

"A wonderfully entertaining show! I love the way you translate opera stories into modern day scenarios."
Mary Sanders
"I didn't think Maestro could top
last month's program, but he did!"
Roslyn Beckoff
