Our Theater

Sarasota Opera owns and performs in the historic Sarasota Opera House. The building has recently undergone a $20-million rehabilitation to restore the beauty of the 1920's theater, while creating an up-to-date opera house for the 21st century.

Masterworks Revival Series

The Masterworks Revival Series ran from 1989 until 2011, producing neglected operatic works of artistic merit. Some of the works were lesser known operas by major composers; others were stage-worthy works by lesser known composers.

The Masterworks Revival Series has now been replaced by the American Classics Series.
