Verdi Portrait

Verdi Circle

Members of the Verdi Circle support our internationally acclaimed Verdi Cycle. The Verdi Cycle, part of Sarasota Opera's artistic vision, is a commitment to present all of Giuseppe Verdi's works. This is one of the reasons our company is constantly in the international spotlight.

"Part of the joy of the Verdi Circle is hearing Victor DeRenzi talk on the operas, which he does just as well as he conducts them, always adding interesting information and perceptions." George W. Martin Noted Verdi Historian and Verdi Circle Member
