Opera Naples Festival Under the Stars

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

2024 Festival Under the Stars runs Feb. 29 through March 10 and includes events at Cambier Park, Wang Opera Center, both in Naples, and St. Leo Catholic Church (Bonita Springs).
The festival takes place primarily in the Wang Opera Center, St. Leo Catholic Church and the transformed Cambier Park softball field with an elevated stage, reserved seating & VIP tables.
The festival includes two evenings with the Luciano Pavarotti Foundation, personally hosted by Nicoletta Pavarotti, which celebrate the legacy of Luciano Pavarotti. Expect to be mesmerized by world-renowned opera artists, such as Marcelo Álvarez, Gregory Kunde, Jennifer Rowley in “Madama Butterfly,” and local favorite Jeanette Donatti. We pay tribute to the great Italian opera composer Giacomo Puccini on the 100th anniversary of his passing with our fully staged Madama Butterfly. Several performances will have a Latin flair as part of the ¡ARTE VIVA! Festival Celebration of Hispanic Arts and Culture, including the ballet Carmen with partner Gulfshore Ballet, as well as an evening of Zarzuela and Flamenco dancing. Opera Naples is especially excited to partner with Grand Piano Series with pianist Konstantin Soukhovetski.
