By Francisco Salazar

Opera Naples has announced its 2021 season featuring three masterworks.

Opera Naples Executive Director, Sondra Quinn said, “We are thrilled to bring these three outstanding operas to the Naples community and to highlight two works of the American lyric stage.”

The season opens with Tom Cipullo’s “Glory Denied” with Ramón Tebar conducting the chamber piece which will be sung by Opera Naples’ resident artists.

Performance Dates: March 5 & 6, 2021

Verdi’s “La Traviata” will be fully staged with Tebar conducting the Naples Philharmonic in a fully staged production. “Violetta captures our imagination in a way that few opera heroines have. The drama, and Verdi’s dazzling score center on this tragic heroine. Our Traviata promises us a memorable night in the theatre,” said Tebar in a press release.

Performance Dates: April 28 & 29, 2021

The final work of the season will be Bernstein’s “West Side Story.” The opera will be performed at the Artis—Naples. Maestro Tebar will conduct.

Performance Date: May 14, 2021

The season will also feature a new outdoor Concert Under the Stars on March 13, 2021 as well as its Beaux Arts, Naples’ Best Jazz and Blue Series, and its annual Gala.
