FGO to stay with four-opera season in 2010-2011
Florida Grand Opera has announced four operas for next season, sticking with the shortened schedule imposed on it by the difficult economy.
The schedule includes two warhorses, Puccini’s Turandot and Mozart’s Don Giovanni, yet is more venturesome than the current season. It includes an opera rarely heard in South Florida, Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffman. And a contemporary work, David DiChiera’s Cyrano, premiered in 2007 at Michigan Opera Theatre in Detroit. Appearing in this production in the role of Roxanne will by the soprano Leah Partridge, a regular of FGO productions.
The season runs from Nov. 13, 2010 through May 7, 2011. Performances will be at both the Arsht Center in Miami and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, except for Cyrano because the company said performance dates were unavailable at the Broward Center.
