Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond

From the Pensacola Opera….

Don’t miss your chance to get the best seats to Cinderella!
Our Cinderella production preparation is in full swing – the artists will be arriving soon and staging will begin, and the Artists in Residence are busy preparing for the upcoming mainstage previews. We are looking forward to this beautiful production with our extremely talented cast and crew!


Rossini’s version of this fairytale brings you

a Cinderella story with a comedic twist, yet it is still the timeless tale of goodness over cruelty that you know and love. From the composer who brought you the entertaining antics in The Barber of Seville comes another hilarious opera full of toe-tapping tunes, colorful characters, and splendid orchestration. Let Rossini’s sparkling music and brilliant romantic comedy enchant you in this debut production by Pensacola Opera.


If you don’t have your tickets yet – don’t delay! Call (850) 433-6737 or go online today to purchase tickets to Cinderella or any of our upcoming events.
