Come and see what the raves are all about. SPO brings you traditional opera with innovative sets and costumes. In the intimate, but not too small, 880-seat Palladium Theater, you'll hear our singers' voices clearly and with nuance over the fantastic St. Petersburg Opera Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Mark Sforzini. See the actors' faces and expressions clearly. Experience opera upclose and personal like you never have before. Our fifth season includes three major productions as well as a return of last season's popular Evening with the Maestro series.
