More of the MainStage Events for TOSCA

Opera Orlando opens its 2023-24 All for Art season On the MainStage with Puccini's tragic masterwork Tosca on October 27 at 7:30 p.m. and October 29 at 2 p.m. in Steinmetz Hall at Dr. Phillips Center. In preparation for what will be one of Opera Orlando’s most ambitious productions to date, the Company has assembled a variety of lead-up events to allow Central Florida audiences to get the most out of Puccini’s masterpiece and connect them with the incredible international cast and creative team in town for the production. 


“While most people think of Oktoberfest this time of year, we will be enjoying an ‘Operafest’ at Opera Orlando,” joked general director and Grammy  award-winner Gabriel Preisser. “Since our first season in 2016-17, our More of the MainStage series of events have been a wonderful way to meaningfully engage with our audience and community to help us fulfill our mission of opera for everyone. This season is no exception with an exciting list of activities with a little something for everyone.”
