It’s not too early to make plans for next Season.
Palm Beach Opera has announced its 2017 schedule, with tickets and subscriptions available now. It will be a season of classics, including Puccini’s Madama Butterfly (January 27-29), Verdi’s Rigoletto (March 10-12) and Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance (April 7-9). This rendition of Pirates will feature Metropolitan Opera star Stephanie Blythe making her Palm Beach Opera Mainstage debut.
Before all that, however, the company opens al fresco at a free community event called Opera @ The Waterfront (2 p.m. on Saturday, December 10 at Meyer Amphitheatre in downtown West Palm Beach). More than 100 musicians will perform opera’s most recognizable arias and ensembles. There are no box seats… bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy the fresh air and live music, part of Palm Beach Opera’s #PBOperaforall effort.
Palm Beach Opera performs its other works at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Buy tickets or arrange for a subscription by calling (561) 833-7888 or visiting the website.
