Christmas is the time for the Tsjaikowski Nutcracker. This year right here in Miami. Apart from the fact that the building and its facilities is fabulous, we enjoyed this years performace very much. I brought my grandchildren and they just had, according to them afterwards, a great time as well. Only prices fot a drink in the voyer are outrageous. $ 8 for a little bit of wine in a plastic cup. This should be changed. As a European lover of any kind of theater we will avoid going there again unless.... Imagine a full glass of wine is free in the theater I normaly go to.

“A really fine regional opera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

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.

“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.
