The Verdi Cycle


"One of the most significant achievements in the opera world."
John Fleming, Tampa Bay Times

The Verdi Cycle began in 1989 as a unique undertaking to perform the complete works of Giuseppe Verdi, both operatic (including all alternative versions of the operas), and incidental music. By the completion of the Cycle in 2016, Sarasota Opera will be the only company in the world to have performed every note of music Verdi ever wrote.  For more complete information on Sarasota Opera's Verdi Cycle, visit www.verdicycle.org.
