Opera Orlando to Take ‘All is Calm’ on Tour

By David Salazar

Opera Orlando is set to put its production of “All is Calm” on tour.

The production, which hails from 2019, will be directed by Grant Preisser with conductor Andrew Minear making his company debut.

“It was such a joy developing our original production of All is Calm, and I am so happy we are bringing it back and sharing it with a much wider audience,” said Opera Orlando general director Gabriel Preisser in an official press statement. “Being able to connect to Orlando’s community of veterans through this work was a highlight of our 2019 holiday season, and we have lined up some great venues throughout Central Florida this season to share this message of hope and peace with even more of our service members, families, and friends.”

The first performance is set to take place at the Polk Theatre in Lakeland, Florida on Dec. 2, 2022.

That will be followed by a showcase at the Ritz Theater at Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford, Florida. The company will then take the opera back to Orlando for two previously announced performances on Dec. 23 and 24, 2022 at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

The company will also be providing concert performances for students at the Montverde Academy and for veterans at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center of Lake Nona on Dec. 16, 2022.
