Gulfshore Opera has adjusted to these challenging times by offering an “Opera al Fresco” concert series which, by popular request, is continuing to add open air events.
The Divas & Dinner concerts will have an Italian flavor at The Club at the Strand in Naples on April 15 and Carmelo’s Italian Ristorante in Punta Gorda on April 18. Each ticket purchase includes a lovely outdoor concert and a delicious dinner with social distant spacing between tables.
GO Divas is Gulfshore Opera’s exciting, new, all female, vocal group. Comprised of six beautiful young ladies with finishing degrees in music, they perform a variety of classical vocal ensembles featuring rich harmonies, with piano accompaniment. Their repertoire spans the centuries from sacred works to lovely opera duets and trios to a cappella Swingle Singers arrangements of Beatles songs. For our Divas & Dinner concerts, you will classical favorites like the Cigarette Girls Chorus from Carmen, Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, and familiar songs like “Stayin Alive” and “In My Life.”
Gulfshore Opera is committed to keeping their patrons safe. Touchless check-in will be utilized, including mobile or electronic tickets. Masks are required for all indoor and outdoor locations. There will be limited and staggered seating to allow for social distancing. To reduce crowding, the concerts are one hour without intermission. The area will be sanitized before each performance in addition to hand sanitizer at each entrance.
The GO Divas include Lauren Davis, Lydia Howery, Lauryn Kay, Daniela Magura, Erika Ramirez and Marie Talley with accompanist Kelly Utterback.
