The Opera Society, will host Florida Grand Opera’s 78th Season Anniversary Gala on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

This enchanting black tie Gala will begin with a Prosecco Reception sponsored by Dall’Armellina Vineyards in the Abdo New River Room at 5:00 PM. Guests will enjoy having photo portraits while listening to the delightful music of The Elegant Harp, a harp duo.

This will be followed by a performance of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro at 6:00 PM in the Au-Rene Theater. “We look forward to everyone experiencing the sensational production of Le Nozze di Figaro, featuring an international cast, many of whom are returning, including some graduates of the FGO Studio making their debut in principal cast roles. What a wonderful way to celebrate our 78th Anniversary,” said Susan T. Danis, General Director and CEO.

After the opera, guests will enjoy dinner inspired by the opera, The Marriage of Figaro, in the Abdo New River Room, followed by dessert and dancing.
