Opera in the Cleveland Italian Cultural Garden
July 25,2010

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 July 25, 2010 event broke records with over 700 adults and countless children attending.

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. The opera continued in 2009.

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 summer evening.

Bravissimo!

Enjoy these photos of happy attendees from that wonderful evening.

Watch videos from the opera performances from 2008 and 2009.
