america's first settlement

Even if you think you know the story, you haven’t heard Romeo & Juliet like this. Pensacola Opera’s

rendition perfectly blends grand opera and the two ill-fated lovers in a spectacle that will captivate

audiences from start to finish without ever having to turn a page. Witness their historic take on the

story, enhancing the true stars of this opera: Charles Gounod’s beautiful, sweeping melodies and

the talented voices of the production’s soloists. And don’t worry – they won’t be issuing any pop

quizzes after the performance!

"The City of Five Flags"

Here's why. Five governments have flown flags here during our history: Spain, France, Great Britain, the Confederate States of America, and our National Flag.

Other commonly known nicknames are: 

"The World's Whitest Beaches," "Cradle of Naval Aviation" (Home of the Legendary Blue Angels), "America's FIRST Settlement" (it really is),

"The Emerald Coast," "The Red Snapper Capital of the World," "The City of Champions" (many Olympic & sports stars are from Pensacola),

 ​"The Western Gate to the Sunshine State," & "The UP Side of Florida."
