THE MAGIC IS BACK!

C

atch Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson giving birth to our nation in 1776 at Asolo Rep (well, not literally!). Tap your feet at Sarasota

Ballet’s tribute to the exuberant rhythms of the 1940s. Go “Stompin’ at the Savoy” or in this case Holley Hall, when Sarasota Orchestra heats things up with Goodwin and Gershwin. Watch suitors try to melt the heart of an ice princess when Sarasota Opera presents Turandot, featuring one of Puccini’s most beloved arias, Nessun Dorma. These are just a few in a line-up of great performances you won’t want to miss. The Ringling International Arts Festival joins forces once again with the Baryshnikov Arts Center bring us amazing performances. Big names like Walter Isaacson, Tom Brokaw and Dr. Robert Gates are just some of Ringling College Library Association’s Town Hall speakers. In February 2013, Sheryl Crow rocks the Van Wezel, so don’t wait to get your tickets. If you love festivals, from film, to food and wine, to crafts, to sand, to chalk, to pottery, sculpture, and paintings, there are oodles to choose from. So join in, have a great time and please help the arts in our community stay strong and vibrant. Buy your tickets, give a donation, volunteer – help in any way possible. And while you’re at it, be sure to invite your family and friends to catch the magic with you!
