What is


POPera series began in Season 14 as a response to the shutdown of mainstage and indoor opera performances. POPera ran performances in several outdoor venues and slowly added covered and even indoor venues as regulations allowed.

The POPera series allowed the company to feature regional and favorites artists from the St Petersburg Opera family. These wildly popular events helped bridge the gap as we prepared for the return of Mainstage Opera.

POPera has also been an amazing outreach program that has brought new audiences into the wonderful artistry that is opera.
