Sarasota Opera to Launch New Opera Broadcast and Film Series

Sarasota Opera is pleased to announce the launch of its new opera broadcast and film series. This new series will allow Sarasota Opera to expand its programming from the fall and winter season to year-around. All showings will occur in the William E. Schmidt Opera Theatre at the Sarasota Opera House.

"Sarasota Opera audiences are often asking for more programming," according to Executive Director Richard Russell. "We are happy to expand our season by providing opera content from around the world."

Sarasota Opera will partner with Screenvision, to present four operas from London's Royal Opera House: Don Giovanni, Nabucco, La traviata, and Manon Lescaut. Each presentation will be preceded by a 15 minute welcome and pre-show discussion about the opera being shown.

There will be two showings of each opera. The schedule for the first four months has been set and is as follows:
