“It's grand indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

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 knowledgeable presentations. Everything about the FGO -- the music, composers and performers -- is exciting.

“very nice presentations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

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.

“Excellent regional opera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

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 of international quality. It is not the Met, but the quality compares favorably with, say, the Santa Fe opera, and if the Arsht Center doesn't have the Met's grand chandeliers or Santa Fe's mountain view, it is nonetheless a very lovely opera house with good acoustics. The educational talks offered an hour before curtain time are always interesting. A lovely experience.

“Great”

I've gone to the grand opera over the years, Miami opera is excellent and you can get inexpensive seats in the upper sections.
Enjoy!
