The Florentine Opera Company invites you to be transported to somewhere unique via our digital-only recital series Voyages, all from the comfort of your own home. See where our artists live, explore beautiful spaces, and enjoy a getaway wrapped around a performance.

Voyages offers three delightful international experiences in a historic library in Burgundy, France; a gorgeous manor in Tequila, Mexico (a UNESCO world heritage site); and a canal-side palazzo in Venice, Italy.

Florentine Artistic Advisor Francesco Milioto gives an overview of the Voyages:

France

Anna Reinhold, mezzo and Jory Vinikour on his personal harpsichord share Baroque gems in a 40-minute program, including music that might have been heard in this very antique library. Stroll the streets of Chalon-sur-Saône in Burgundy, where Jory resides when not performing around the world. Hear the history of the beautiful town from the mayor and a professional tour guide.

Available January 22-July 22

Mexico

The sun-drenched, exuberant music of Mexico is featured in this program, coming to us from the UNESCO world heritage town of Tequila! Benito Rodriguez brings many musician friends along on this adventure, exploring Zarzuela to classical opera. Wander the streets of this picturesque town, whose growth was driven by Cuervo’s success. Perhaps a tequila tasting and great Mexican meal are in order.
