Opera Santa Barbara invites you to travel back to 1960’s Italy to celebrate our accomplishments and bright future la dolce vita style! Join us for frivolity, fabulous food, plenty of cocktails, and Italian inspired music including Neapolitan songs to beloved Italian crooner classics of the 50’s and 60’s.

On this glamorous evening we will raise a toast to the vision, leadership and generosity of opera lovers Joan Rutkowski and Sandy and Bob Urquhart. Enjoy a special video highlighting Opera SB’s work after March 2020 and stand up for opera on the Granada stage to help fund a glorious new 22-23 season of main stage works and free community programs.
