Princess Swanwhite must marry the King. But, when he sends the Prince to school her in the demands of being Queen, the youngsters fall for each other’s charms – and into each other’s arms. Fleeing the King’s wrath, the Prince dies in a storm. Or does he? Swanwhite’s faith in the power of love may have the power to save her Prince as Opera Tampa presents the world premiere of Anton Coppola’s latest work, the intimate chamber opera Lady Swanwhite. Lady Swanwhite is sung in English with lyrics projected above the stage.

Lady Swanwhite will be sung in English. A conductor will be announced at a later date.
