Here is a video about a production of Pinocchio
produced by St. Petersburg Opera.
St. Pete Opera Guild’s commitment to opera education outreach programs to schools and the community includes financial support of the St. Petersburg Opera Company’s annual production of the charming children’s opera “Pinocchio”. Since Pinocchio’s inaugural presentation in 2016, the guild has been one of the proud co-sponsors of the production, and guild members have served not only as volunteers at both school and public performances, but have helped to write and prepare the colorful “Pinocchio” pamphlet distributed to 3rd grade school students prior to their attending school performances..
Of course, the St. Petersburg Opera Guild supports the St. Petersburg Opera Company, and the talented team of professionals led by Maestro Mark Sforzini.
