What I love about this event is that it takes away all the stuffiness traditionally associated with opera. It also is a chance to be in the community, as well as reach out to all people.We salute Palm Beach Opera for their forward thinking.

Palm Beach Opera to Present 5th Annual Free Opera @ The Waterfront Concert
Palm Beach Opera will Present Opera @ The Waterfront, its free, annual open-air concert, at the Meyer Amphitheatre in downtown West Palm Beach on Saturday, December 9th at 2 pm.
Showcasing 150 musicians, the concert features opera arias and ensembles, as well as favorite Broadway melodies performed by Palm Beach Opera’s Benenson Young Artists, Apprentice Artists, Orchestra, and Chorus, with special guest, The Ebony Chorale of The Palm Beaches.
“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with The Ebony Chorale of the Palm Beaches after last season’s successful Crossings Concert, which celebrated the musical threads that connect our two historically-rich genres,” says General Director Daniel Biaggi, “It’s wonderful to highlight South Florida’s vibrant and diverse performing arts scene.”
In its fifth consecutive year, Opera @ The Waterfront brings the experience of world-class, live opera to West Palm Beach’s beautiful Intracoastal Waterway, with a dynamic repertoire that also includes a few selections from the company’s upcoming season and a special ensemble number by The Ebony Chorale of the Palm Beaches.
Guests are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets, as well as enjoy on-site food trucks. Face painting, temporary tattoos, and interactive craft stations will also available for children.
