2022 Festival Season

Thank you for joining us for the 2022 Festival season!

We are thrilled to present these lesser known Italian masterpieces featuring world-renowned stars from the opera stage. This season we presented performances of Rossini’s “L’inganno Felice” and Verdi’s “Il Corsaro”. We also presented a special concert event celebrating the life and legacy of legendary soprano, Renata Tebaldi.
