Tosca

by Giacomo Puccini

Starring Ramón Vargas

One of the most acclaimed tenors of the 21st century, Ramón Vargas will capture our hearts in Tosca, a story of love, lust, murder, and political intrigue. Passion and jealousy drive this tragic tale, which depicts the tempestuous life of opera singer Floria Tosca, her lover Mario Cavaradossi, and the corrupt chief of police, Baron Scarpia.

Glory Denied

by Tom Cipullo

Composed in 2007, this acclaimed opera brings to life the story of the longest-held American prisoner of war from the Vietnam era and his agonizing re-introduction to an America that had moved on without him. This masterful adaptation makes a lasting impression with a thrillingly varied score and a mesmerizing libretto.

On The Town

by L. Bernstein & J. Robbins

New York City’s pomp and fanfare sets the stage for this story of three sailors looking for love in a whirlwind 24-hour adventure before heading off to battle in World War II. The appealing musical score, youthful exuberance of characters and the unique moment in history make On the Town a true American classic.

Javier Camarena

Opera Concert

Mexican tenor Javier Camarena is the preeminent Mozart and bel canto specialist of his generation. Praised for his burnished tone, gleaming high notes, flawless coloratura, and veracious portrayals, Camerana will shine under the beauty of Southwest Florida’s stars.
