Opening Night of Barber of Seville

Tonight is the opening night for our first Fall Opera production: The Barber of Seville. There is a lot of great interest due to the fact that this is our 50th Season and the first time that the Sarasota Orchestra will be in the pit.

The Sarasota Herald Tribune came by the dress rehearsal and got a few more photos. They are now posted on their website.

WWSB-TV (ABC 7) was also by and Linda Carson featured the production on Suncoast Scene. There is some video on their site as well.
