Gone are the days when opera was reserved for only the aristocratic; thanks to the Enzian’s Summer Opera Series, the best in high definition opera is coming to Central Florida for a fraction of the typical ticket price.

For all you opera newbies, this is a great opportunity to sample a taste of the opera without having to invest much $$. Plus, if you really hate it, at least the Enzian stocks enough wine and beer to get you through the experience painlessly.

These operas hail from a prestigious selection of world renowned venues including La Scala, the Salzburg Festival, the Bolshoi at L’Opera de Paris, and the Teatro Regio (Parma).
