Get Ready to Rock…the Runway

Pensacola Opera is pleased to announce its ground-breaking, musical fashion-fusion event, Rock the Runway, featuring members of the star-studded musical show, Rock Me Amadeus LIVE, from New York City.


On February 22, 2024, at Vinyl Music Hall, the fashion runway will be filled with the sound of iconic rock and pop songs from your favorite bands from the 70s, 80s, and 90s melding with operatic masterpieces to create an experience unlike any seen in Pensacola. To the powerhouse sound of Rock Me Amadeus LIVE, models will strut the runway in looks inspired by iconic opera heroines–based on our own Pensacola Opera costumes by Wardrobe Witchery–and curated by local boutiques. This event promises to bring together the worlds of opera and fashion in a way that is visually stunning and artistically inspiring.

“It will certainly be more than just a typical fashion show, it will be ‘fashion theater.’ Imagine the grandeur of symphonic classical music, the opulence of opera, and the powerful emotions and nostalgia of rock and pop genres combining into one electrifying experience,” says Chandra McKern, General Director.
