“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!

“Much better than you might imagine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

For a decidedly regional company, their standards are remarkably high.
Their productions (always rented) are generally interesting.
The singers are only occasionally the top portrayer of any roll, but it is exceedingly rare to find a sub-standard voice.
All operas are performed in both Miami and Ft Lauderdale
