The Florida Grand Opera is launching a 3-year program that’ll bring the opera to the most uncanny and unexpected of places. The ultimate goal is to expose new audiences to the opera by taking it out of the opera house.
The program is funded by a grant from the James L. Knight foundation and debutes during Miami Music Week, March 21-23rd at The Stage in Midtown. The performance will feature Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s Tango and Ástor Piazzolla’s María de Buenos Aires.
Performances are being held at The Stage (170 Northeast 38th St., Miami, FL 33137) on March 21 through March 23, 2013. The evening’s program is as follows:
8:00 p.m. – Doors open
9:00 – 9:30 p.m. – Pre-show with live band 9:30 – 10:00 p.m. – Tango
10:00 – 10:15 p.m. – Intermission
10:15 – 11:15 p.m. – María de Buenos Aires
The Sunday, March 24, performance will feature an earlier schedule as detailed below:
