The lights go down, a hush falls over the audience and the curtain rises on Sarasota's most storied theater. U-shaped, with three tiers of boxes, this architectural gem provides a rare sense of intimacy between audience and performer that adds so much to the theater going experience. Created in Asolo, Italy in 1798, brought to Sarasota in the early 1950s and painstakingly restored in 2006, the Historic Asolo Theater is one of the most beloved objects in The Ringling collection.
