Opera in the Italian Cultural Garden
August 9, 2009 in Cleveland

Brava to Joyce Mariani, Executive Director of the Italian Cultural Garden Foundation, and her team for once again bringing live opera to the Garden. The August 9, 2009 event was part of the Italian Renaissance Cultural Garden's "Viva Cultura Italiana" cultural series.

Dedicated "as a symbol of Italian culture" in 1930, the Italian Cultural Garden hosted the San Carlo Opera sixty-six years ago in its lower level amphitheater.

In 2008, the Italian Garden Foundation was proud to present opera once again to revive this tradition.

Today, Italian renaissance gardens throughout Italy, such as the Boboli Renaissance Gardens in Florence, Italy present concerts of opera, ballet and popular music. Performances by Opera Per Tutti filled the Garden on that warm summer evening.


Enjoy a sample (below) from that wonderful evening. Many more pictures and videos of the Opera in the Italian Cultural Garden
