Maestro Bruno Arpea has severed his connections with the Palm Beach Opera yesterday. COMMANDOpera has left any number of enquiries with the Palm Beach Opera, however calls have been returned. Maestro Arpea is credited with turning around the Palm Beach Opera single handedly after the death of Music Director Anthony Guadagno left the company rudderless. Palm Beach Opera has been undergoing major restructuring within the back of house staffing to ameliorate their rather dire financial situation (not uncommon for many global theaters today). COMMANDOpera understands the Maestro was offered a renewal contract for the 2012-1013 season very recently by General Director Daniel Biaggi which is at the heart of the matter. All mention of the Maestro has been removed from the Palm Beach Opera website.
