When KATE Met The Maestro

When Kate met the Maestro: Join us for music and fun
William Shakespeare meets Cole Porter in Kiss Me, Kate, our next Mainstage production (Feb. 2-10). In the latest fun and freewheeling editions of our Maestro series, live music and performances by several of St. Pete Opera’s very best singers augment Maestro Sforzini’s introduction to the musical theater landmark that gave us “Too Darn Hot,” “So in Love” and the song that provides this, our 13th season, with its theme: “Why Can’t You Behave?”
