For a once-in-a-lifetime Lent experience, Gulfshore Opera will bring the Gospel of Matthew to music through Johann Sebastian Bach’s sacred oratorio, Saint Matthew Passion. A grand scale undertaking never done in Southwest Florida, this performance will feature the FGCU Chamber Choir and The Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers Chamber Chorus, a core ensemble of eight soloists and the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus. . In this dramatic re-enactment the soloists will depict Matthew, Jesus, the disciples and women from the Bible.

This light-hearted comedy bubbles with effervescent arias and charm as the elixir causes as many problems as it solves. Irish tenor, Anthony Kearns, will return to Southwest Florida to sing the role of Nemorino, a poor peasant in love with a beautiful landowner, Adina, and tormented by her utter indifference. L’elisir d’amore, Donizetti’s most performed opera, is perhaps most known for the famous tenor aria, “Una furtiva lagrima.”
