Sarasota Opera is proud to announce casting for the 2015-2016 fall and winter season, truly the most climactic in the company’s 57 year history. The season will feature the final two installments of the 28 year Verdi Cycle – The Battle of Legnano and Aida- in a grand spectacle of music, vocal prowess, awe-inspiring choruses, sumptuous scenery, and luxurious costumes. In addition, the company will present Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, Mozart’s comedic Così fan tutte, Giacomo Puccini’s La bohème, and Hans Krása’s Brundibár. “This is a landmark season for the company and I think we have a wonderful line-up of artists for this important event,” says Maestro Victor DeRenzi, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor at Sarasota Opera.” At the close of the Verdi Cycle on March 20, 2016, Sarasota Opera will be the only company in the world to have performed every note of Giuseppe Verdi intended for performance that is currently available. Sarasota Opera will close the Cycle with a “Verdi Festival Week” March 15 – 20, 2016 which will include performances of both Verdi operas, two concerts dedicated to the music of Verdi, an international Verdi Conference, and many more commemorative events. Single tickets for the 2015/16 Fall and Winter Opera Festival go on sale exclusively online Saturday, August 1.  Single tickets will be available for purchase through the Sarasota Opera Box Office on Tuesday, September 1.
