Gulfshore Playhouse, pop-up opera change Naples downtown look this year
Even if we don’t set foot in a theater, we will see more of the performing arts just by being in Naples this year:
Two organizations responsible for that high visibility have been generating a good deal of suspense already:
- The hope that walls will finally begin to rise for Gulfshore Playhouse’s new complex.
- Curiosity about the new venue and celebrities for Opera Naples’ Festival Under the Stars.
The first marks the culmination of a dream that’s been a long time coming for Gulfshore Playhouse, which was incorporated here in 2004. The second is a gamble that turned pandemic restrictions into a wildly successful outdoor festival for Opera Naples last year.
