“Not always for real Opera lovers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

FGO, like much of the art scene in Miami, is suffering from under-funding. Many of the performances were superb productions with near top level performers, but the temperamental Miami audience does not seem to appreciate some of the more adventurous productions. The retirement of the tireless long time master, will undoubtedly make significant changes....time will tell how. The controversially named "Opera House" is a remarkably unremarkable incredibly costly building with shoddy finishes and materials, the overpowering garish curtain and cheap lighting may be appreciated by "Music Hall" or burlesque audiences.Unfortunately the building and its gauche name detract from being a "GRAND OPERA"

And even if you are not, this is the best Opera House in my opinion. Enjoy and support the arts. It's for everyone...

“As hard as they try...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

FGO cannot go pass the feeling of a very provincial company. I think is time to get new blood into their management and get some productions worth seeing, for a change.
