In the story “The Wizard Of Oz,” a young girl named Dorothy—with dog Toto in hand—is taken over the rainbow by a tornado to the magical land of Oz. While there, she encounters a cast of characters that help her on her journey to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard of Oz who she says can get her back to her home in Kansas because, as she realizes by the end of the story, “there’s no place like home.”

Some similarities between that classic story and the events of GayDayS makes it even more fitting that next year’s theme for GayDayS, which will also be the 30th Anniversary of the original Gay Day at the Magic Kingdom, will be “Emerald City” as the organization returns its events back to its traditional dates in June.

Tosca

Share this story:

Sometimes rejection feels like a knife in the heart, and no one knows that better than Puccini’s treacherous villain Scarpia when he sets his machinations on the beautiful singer Tosca and her lover Cavaradossi. A masterwork of soaring arias and exquisite duets, Tosca shines as one of the great jewels of the operatic form. Iconic, everlasting, Puccini’s riveting melodrama of escape, pursuit, torture and murder culminates in Tosca’s gripping battle to try to save everything she believes in — art, love and life itself.

Tosca will be sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage. Maestro Lipton will lead an international cast along with the Opera Tampa Orchestra and Chorus.

Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers find themselves trapped in the deadly Montague-Capulet family feud. Defying family honor, they choose each other, taking their lives into their own hands. In this daring dance with fate, Romeo and Juliet seal their future in a secret marriage before everything takes a turn for the worse. Verona may be fair, but life isn’t. Gounod’s dark, intense music meets a masterful libretto true to the Bard’s first telling of this spellbinding tale of young love undone by foolish family pride.

Romeo and Juliet will be sung in French with English translations projected above the stage. Maestro Lipton will lead an international cast along with the Opera Tampa Orchestra and Chorus.
