Join fellow opera lovers for the highlight event of the Florida Opera Festival’s season, the Opera Tampa 20th Anniversary Gala.  Celebrating 20 years of bringing the queen of the performing arts to the Tampa Bay area, this year’s event also honors a local legend -- world-renowned baritone Sherrill Milnes – with the Anton Coppola Excellence in the Arts Award.

This black-tie affair begins with a cocktail reception on the set of Giuseppi Verdi’s Rigoletto on Carol Morsani Hall stage followed by an elegant dinner with Maestro Daniel Lipton in the Ruth Silbiger Lobby of Carol Morsani Hall.  An exciting live auction followed by live music and the presentation of the Coppola award cap off an unforgettable evening.
