Florentine Opera at the Marcus Center in Milwaukee

Florentine Opera

The Florentine Opera is Milwaukee’s oldest performing arts organization, beginning life as the Italian Opera Chorus in 1933.

If you love the intimate interaction of song and story, the incomparable range of the human voice, and the sumptuous spectacle that only grand opera can provide, attend a Florentine Opera Mainstage performance.

We’ve been bringing a little bit of the world to Milwaukee since 1933. We’re on a journey of discovery, exploring the glory of the human voice. We’re a powerhouse for all different voices and stories, which have endured through the centuries and resonate with our humanity and passion. We’re a live, supersized experience, created in-the-moment through theater, staging, lighting, lavish costumes, and beautiful song, bringing you the most immersive and all-encompassing artistic experience possible. Join us for a live performance that will sweep you off your feet.
