Sarasota Opera patrons wanted them, so we've brought back our highly popular Meet the Artists Previews. Because of the demand we continue to feature these informative sessions in the theater rather than the lobby. This means that tickets to the event, usually sold out well in advance, are now available to a larger number of opera patrons.
During these previews Sarasota Opera’s Artistic Director Victor Derenzi interviews the principal singers, director, and various designers who are involved with each of the four operas being performed during the season. These “backstage” goodies give operagoers a special look into the professional lives of the artists.
All Meet the Artists Previews take place in the William E. Schmidt Theater of the Sarasota Opera House at 5 p.m. on the following dates:
• February 1 – La bohème
• February 8 – Don Giovanni
• February 22 – I Lombardi
• March 1 – The Crucible
Tickets are $15 per person and are available at the Box Office, 61 N Pineapple Avenue, Sarasota; by phone at (941) 328-1300; or online at
