Sarasota Opera is pleased to announce a $50,000 Arts Appreciation Grant from Gulf Coast Community Foundation. In a longstanding commitment to honor the cultural and economic contributions of the region’s cornerstone arts groups, Gulf Coast provides flexible funding to organizations so they can focus on their artistic missions.  Acknowledging the region’s reputation as a leading artistic and cultural haven, Gulf Coast awarded Arts Appreciation Grants to 12 arts organizations in the area, including Sarasota Opera. Sarasota Opera’s 63rdconsecutive season will begin this week with Rossini’s The Silken Ladder. The 2022 Winter Festival will open with Puccini’s Tosca, followed by Donizetti’s The Daughter of the Regiment, Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers, and Verdi’s Attila. The Gulf Coast grant also supports the Sarasota Youth Opera, which will be presenting a special concert with the Sarasota Opera Apprentice Artists and the Sarasota Opera Orchestra in March 2022. With generous backing from the entire community, Sarasota Opera was the only opera company in the U.S. to present a season in their theater during February and April 2021.
