Florida Grand Opera has announced the operas of its 2013-2014 season, the first to be curated by the company’s new CEO and General Director Susan T. Danis and Music Director Maestro Ramon Tebar.
The provocative titles are designed to take Miami audiences on a journey through captivating worlds – from murder in New England to seduction in the Orient. Opening Nov. 7, Marvin David Levy’s Mourning Becomes Electra retells a famous Greek tragedy in a new production by Grammy-nominated director Kevin Newbury with the talented Lauren Flanigan leading the cast.
Nabucco follows on Jan. 25, 2014, with a tale of exile told by a stellar dual cast featuring Maria Guleghina and Susan Neves.
One of the world’s most famous operas, Tosca, comes to life on Mar. 29, 2014, with the powerhouse voices of Kara Shay Thomson and Jouvanca Jean- Baptiste. The season closes with the return of the exotic Thaªs, which opens May 3, 2014, with the role debuts of Eglise Gutiérrez and Angela Mortellaro.
Subscriptions to all four operas start as low as $36. For more information, contact the FGO’s Box Office at 800- 741-1010 or visit www.FGO.org
