"Opera & The Sea"

THE CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS

 

Narrated by actor Stephen Ray, this unique 80-minute program showcases lesser-known gems of opera and features an intriguing repertoire from diverse composers Mozart and Rossini, Wagner, Bizet, Dvorak; and selections from contemporary works like Billy Budd and Streetcar Named Desire.

From wistful farewells to embarking travelers to the lamentations of ghost sailors, “Opera and the Sea” explores light fancy and deep emotion, and always makes it tuneful and touching.

The rich instrumental colors of flute, clarinet and bassoon weave a tapestry of sound in concert with the piano talents of Teresa Ancaya. Karl Hesser presents supertitles for the Friday and Saturday performances.

What is

POPera?

The St Petersburg Opera is bringing opera back to the live stage through its POPera performances. Presented in socially distanced settings, these partially staged live programs retain the flavor of Grand Opera, with a narrative arc and big drama.


Safety Information

The safety of our patrons and staff is very important to us, and we take precautions at all our events to prevent the spread of COVID-19. St Petersburg Opera requires temperature checks and masks for everyone who enters our building at Opera Central. Social distancing is strictly observed, with a minimum of 7 feet between tables and 15 feet distance from the stage to the first row of tables. Cage Brewing is an outdoor, covered venue, with social distancing and masks required. Our performances at the Museum of Fine Arts are held outdoors on the grassy lawn north of the museum building. Audience members bring their own chairs or blankets and are required to practice social distancing.
