Salome by Richard Strauss - Miami

Next date: Jan 27, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

A depraved princess executes a frenzied dance of death.

With its bizarre brew of eroticism and religion, Richard Strauss’s Salome was so disturbing when it first appeared that it was banned in Vienna and London. Today, it’s lost none of its power to send shivers through the audience, and this production eerily captures all the depravity of King Herod’s court in ancient Jerusalem. Starring as the princess whose sexually charged dance leads straight to her own destruction is Melody Moore, the dynamic soprano who has electrified the operas of Janáček, Wagner, and Puccini. Come see Salome cast her potent spell over South Florida.

Orfeo by Christoph Willibald Gluck - Miami

Next date: Mar 17, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

A wife must enter the Underworld to discover the depth of her husband’s devotion.

Gluck’s masterpiece is most famous for its immortal aria, “Che farň senza Euridice.” But it’s also a compelling and deeply personal story of how far one man will go to prove his devotion to his wife. The grief-stricken musician and poet Orfeo risks the terrifying depths of the Underworld to bring back his beloved Euridice alive. For years, the role of Orfeo was the specialty of mezzo-sopranos, but FGO has cast one of today’s most dazzling countertenors, Anthony Roth Costanzo, hailed by The New York Times as an “utterly riveting” performer.

An opera star goes down the Amazon on a magical quest.

Inspired by the writings of the great Gabriel García Márquez (One Hundred Years of Solitude), Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas is one of the most lyrical and melodious new operas of the past 30 years, embraced by critics and audiences everywhere it has played. This story of a Brazilian soprano’s emotionally fraught journey back to her homeland offers a brilliant display of magical realism and pushes the operatic form to new limits of imagination. To portray a great artist, FGO has engaged a great artist Ana María Martínez, acclaimed as one of the most beloved Butterflys in recent Metropolitan Opera history.
