Total disclosure: I do not take OPERA lightly. I moved to Miami after almost 20 years of subscribing at the Met, where I experienced magnificence and magnificent failures. The fact that I feel free to compare my Met experiences with my FGO experiences should tell you how really excellent the FGO productions generally are. I attended last night's penultimate performance... More

It is a great venue for Operas. The sound quality is superb! The theater is really made for Operas, the way the seating is arranged, it makes it accessible for everyone, and easy to see. It is a very nice theater. The performers are talented. Its just a pure pleasure to see an Opera here.

The Florida Grand Opera started with a group of dedicated volunteers and has grown into a professional world-class opera company. The Arsht Center with it's concert hall, opera house, and additional smaller theaters has greatly contributed to the FGO's rise to its present status. Though my husband and I no longer live in Miiami-Dade County, we purchase season subscriptions and... More

The Florida Grand Opera is one of Miami's best-kept secrets - but hopefully that will change! Not too many people realize that the Florida Grand OPERA stages brilliant operas throughout the year, so visitors who want to soak in the sun during the day, can dine somewhere nearby at night and then enjoy the fabulous sets, voices and drama of...

For the last eight years I have always enjoyed attending an opera with the Florida Grand Opera at the Arsht Center. Magnificent talent and always a pleasure to be there early to hear about the back story of the opera. Absolutely a must see! A joy!

The operas best seating is in the first balcony, you have a panorama view of the theaters set & the its symphony. After the show, inside the Oprea house, the restaurant Book and Books, offers organic foods with seating inside and in the opera court yard.

Great place to visit when in town. I really enjoyed myself and will be back. The place is busy so worth getting a seat as early as you can. We were in a group of 12, and it wasn't possible for all of us to be seared in one row which was unfortunate.

Thank you so much for the high rating and for the kind words! We are sorry your group of 12 couldn't sit together. You are correct, we do tend to get very busy the week before a show. If you make sure to speak to our box office manager, Gary Herman, a few days before a show, he can work... More

I've been attending Florida Grand Opera's productions as a subscriber. While I think they've always been very good, I feel they've really notched up their quality in the past 2 years so that they're truly world class. Madame Butterfly was spectacular-- which bodes well for Cosi Fan Tutte. The venue (Arsht Center) is also great-- it's fun to make a... More

Of course this is not "La Scala" or the "Opera". But the event we participate last may (may be april) for the La Traviata exhibition, was excellent.
