"A wonderfully entertaining show!
I love the way you translate opera stories
into modern day scenarios."
Mary Sanders

No one can discuss, illustrate and illuminate the wonderful world of opera with more finesse (and more fun) than St. Pete Opera’s own Maestro Mark Sforzini. For 10 years, his Maestro Series has been the gateway to enjoyment for thousands of bay area opera fans, from the newly-won to the veteran aficionado. A few days before each of our Mainstage productions, join Maestro – and several of the professional singers who’ll perform at the big show – for an educational, entertaining and mainly musical overview of the opera – including the composer’s own thoughts on the songs and the storyline. You’ll never hear opera the same way again! 

"I didn't think Maestro could
top last month's program -
but he did!"
Roslyn Beckoff
