Join A Toast to the Future of Opera!

The Eileen Albanese Legacy Society

Eileen Albanese was a former president of the Florida Suncoast Opera Guild and an early supporter of St. Petersburg Opera.  She was the first person to leave a legacy to  the company in her will.   The following cherished friends have notified us that they have provided for the future of the opera company in their estate planning.  While we hope to see all of them for many years to come, we appreciate the confidence they have expressed in the future of our company.  If you would like to be recognized in the society, please contact our Development office at 727-823-2040 or email Susie Hellman Spatafora at

A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants a shade tree under which he knows full well he will never sit.
