Florida Grand Opera will host its 75th Anniversary Gala at the Adrienne Arsht Center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a performance of Carmen, a sensational production featuring an international cast. Chaired by Kristin Podack and Olga Figueras, the gala will feature matadors, flamenco dancers and the fabulous Spanish guitarist Marco Sartor, who will help create the illusion that you have been transported to Spain. FGO’s milestone anniversary promises to be the event of the year, a night not to be missed! Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, inspired by Carmen and the flavors of Spain, will be served after the performance in the Peacock Room, followed by a sumptuous dinner of fine wines and delicious and carefully confectioned Spanish cuisine prepared by rising star chef Brad Kilgore on the Lynn Wolfson Stage. Red roses and incredible decor will speak loudly about the passion and the drama of Carmen as you dance the night away! Individual tickets begin at $1,000; or $10,000 for a table of ten, a $15,000 Patrocinador Table, $20,000 Micaëla or Escamillo Table, and $25,000 Carmen or Maestro Table. Proceeds will benefit FGO’s future productions, education and outreach initiatives. These programs include free access to opera education for at-risk youth and intensive training for young opera singers as they enter the first phase of their careers.
