Sarasota Opera Safely and Successfully Concludes A Remarkable Season

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY APR 30, 2021

It is a story that couldn’t be completely told until the final curtain fell. On Sunday, April 25th, 2021, Sarasota Opera concluded its 62nd season with a fully staged performance of Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas to a live audience filling 20% of the seating capacity of the Sarasota Opera House. The safe conclusion of the season resulted from many months of preparation to plan and implement lengthy protocols designed for the health and safety of the artists, crew, staff, and audience. On the continuing efforts to produce opera under such extraordinary circumstances, Maestro DeRenzi concludes, “When we pass this crisis, people will want to be with others even more than in the past. Great art has survived wars, depressions and pandemics. It will be up to us to restore the arts to their place of importance in our society.”
