Our mission is to create greater interest in opera and musical theater in the Tampa Bay area. We accomplish this goal through several means. The Pinellas Opera League and the Marcia P. Hoffman Performing Arts Institute at Ruth Eckerd Hall offer a moderately priced series of talks at the Institute, entitled “Adventures in Opera and Musical Theater”. These lectures are both educational and entertaining, and consist of opera highlights, narratives, and live performances by young singers, dancers or musicians. We also provide pre-opera speakers before any operatic event at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Admission to the pre-opera talks is free to members and guests of members of the Pinellas Opera League.
We offer introduction to opera lectures at various venues in the Tampa Bay area and we present monthly showings of videos of live opera performances in partnership with Seminole Community Library (see events). In addition we have monthly social meetings that include lunch and operatic entertainment.
