Opera Tampa has four major productions on its 2011-12 schedule released Thursday. Two productions — the double bill of Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci and Verdi's Aida — will be performed at Morsani Hall of the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, which runs the opera company. Mozart's Don Giovanni and an "Arias & Encores" concert of the music of Verdi, Puccini, Bizet and more will be performed in the Straz's smaller venue, Ferguson Hall. The lineup is an increase of activity from the current season, which has just three major productions, including Thursday's "Night of Stars" concert and gala. The company will also present pop opera tenor Andrea Bocelli in concert at the St. Pete Times Forum.
