Florida Grand Opera has commissioned a new translation and created a new production of one of the most successful comic operas from the late 18th century with a Miami twist performed in Spanish. Now updated and relocated to South Florida with a Cuban family in the 1980s running Hotel Paraiso on Miami Beach. The new Spanish translated production features the six characters getting into awkward cultural situations, caught in compromising positions, and drinking Cuba Libres (Rum and Coke) until a family secret uncovers.

El matrimonio secreto is the perfect opera for anyone who loves the music of Rossini (The Barber of Seville) and the comedy of Mozart (The Marriage of Figaro). Discover this charming score and become part of bochinche (gossip) when a father attempts to marry off his two daughters who already have plans for the future with a telenovela (Spanish soap opera) spin.
