Of course this is not "La Scala" or the "Opera". But the event we participate last may (may be april) for the La Traviata exhibition, was excellent. I had the opportunity to be at FGO many times, unfortunately some time shows aren't at the high level we can expect. But I suggest to have the experience if you want to... More

I have been going for 40 years. I have always enjoyed the shows. Tickets are usually available. Only issue is they don't always start on time.

Hello there! We appreciate your kind words, especially with someone who has been with us for so long! We completely understand your frustration with us not being able to start on time. Unfortunately, South Florida traffic often affects our audience members being able to make it to the theater on time. Because we don't allow late seating until 1st intermission,... More

Thais was so beautiful , the music stayed with me for days. This year I have been to young artist performances, artist talks, and after performance interactions with singers, set designers and management, as well as all the operas. This company is one of America's truly great bargains.

Maria Guleghina hasn't aged well. It took her one act to warm up but once she did, OMG was she ever great. Did not think having the audience sing the slave chorus was a good idea but whatever.

We always enjoy attending these operas at the Arscht Center. Top quality singers, and often innovative desigtners. Be sure to attend the opera pre-talk one hour before the performance! A quality evening.

We have been Florida Grand Opera season subscribers for several years and the experience has been a good one all along. The experience started from back when productions were still being done at the Dade County Auditorium before the new opera house was inaugurated in 2006. You'd love Justin Moss's pre-production presentations. He makes everything more exciting with witty and... More

This is a world class opera company. You will enjoy any performance, and all presentations are lavish and over the top as expected with opera.

We attend one or two of the Florida Grand Opera performances every year, driving up from our home near Key West and staying over for the night in Miami. We have seen excellent productions (among others) of Madame Butterfly, Turandot, and most recently a lovely Traviata. The costumes and staging are grand and well done, the singers near the top...
