Sarasota Opera Opens 62nd Season

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY FEB 17, 2021

On Friday, February 12th, Sarasota Opera opened its 2021 Winter Opera Festival with a fully staged production of Gioachino Rossini’s The Happy Deception (L’inganno Felice) to a live audience filling 25% of the seating capacity of the Sarasota Opera House. The opening of the 62nd season came after many months of preparation to plan and implement the lengthy protocols designed for the health and safety of the artists, crew, staff, and audience. Sarasota Opera Executive Director Richard Russell said, “None of us imagined that opera houses, theaters, and concert halls around the world would be mostly shuttered for a year (and counting) and that most of our artists would be out of work. As we navigated the uncertainty of the situation, we realized that we couldn’t remain silent. Despite the health emergency, we felt it was important to keep a connection with our audience, community, and artists.”
