About Opera Tampa

Celebrating Over Two Decades of Operatic Excellence

For a quarter of a century, Opera Tampa has stood as the jewel in the Straz Center for the Performing Arts crown, offering the Tampa Bay community a gateway into the opulent world of opera. As the resident opera company, it has brought to the stage not only a plethora of breathtaking productions but also Still, it has also extended its reach beyond the footlights through significant educational outreach, nurturing a love for this art form among the young and old alike.

Leadership at the Helm

Under the visionary leadership of Judith Lisi, Opera Tampa continues to thrive. Lisi, the general director of Opera Tampa and president of the Straz Center, has been instrumental in guiding the company towards new horizons. The artistic baton, now held by Daniel Lipton, brings a wealth of international experience and a fresh perspective to the company’s artistic direction. Lipton’s tenure has already seen the successful launch of the “Florida Opera Festival,” further cementing Opera Tampa’s status as a cultural cornerstone.

A Venue Fit for Royalty
