Directions How to find Sarasota Opera House The historic Sarasota Opera House is located at 61 North Pineapple Avenue, just across the street from the Selby Library, in the heart of downtown Sarasota. From I-75, take exit 210 then travel west on Fruitville Road (toward the beaches). You’ll take Fruitville all the way across town, past Highway 301, Orange Avenue and Lemon Avenue to Cocoanut. Turn left onto Cocoanut. Make a second (almost immediate) left onto Pineapple, which angles into Cocoanut. Pineapple will take you right up in front of the Opera House, where valet parking is available for all Opera events one-hour prior to curtain.
