Announcing the 77th Opera Season in South Florida

Monday, Apr 30, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM - English

The 77th Florida Grand Opera season promises to give you something to rave about, cast with some of the most sought-after singers in the opera world today. Our 2017-18 season will include four operas that deal with women who undergo experiences so powerful that they are never the same afterward.

Show more >>

On November 11 we’ll take you to the 18th century with one of the most dramatic and best-loved works in the bell canto repertoire, Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, with the extraordinary soprano Anna Christy, star of the Metropolitan Opera and Royal Opera House.

In January 2018 we’ll travel to ancient Jerusalem with Richard Strauss’s Salome starring soprano Melody Moore, who has stunned audiences with performances at New York City Opera and Glimmerglass Festival.

In March 2018 we move from a Biblical setting to a mythological one with Christoph Willibald Gluck’s magnificent retelling of the Orpheus legend, Orfeo ed Euridice. Starring in one of the greatest vocal masterpieces is countertenor Anthony Roth Constanzo, who won the first prize in Placido Domingo’s 2012 Operalia Competition.

We then conclude the 77th season with our “Made for Miami” contemporary work that forges a strong connection with Miami’s rich and diverse communities, Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas. Starring in one of the most widely successful opera of the past two decades will be soprano Ana María Martínez, acclaimed for her performances at the Metropolitan Opera and San Francisco Opera.

Haroon Mirza’s ACIDGEST at PAMM

Monday, Apr 30, 2018 various times - English

Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London) is a multimedia artist who works with audiovisual materials, electronic equipment, amplifiers, and found objects to create immersive environments and kinetic sculptures. His work amplifies phenomena that are often imperceptible such as electricity and seeks to create or distort the relationship between optics and acoustics, giving unexpected visual and sensorial analogs to what we hear. Mirza uses a particular visual and material vocabulary to modify architectural spaces, including colored neon and sculptural acoustic foam, creating installations that offer a precise, highly mediated experience of sound and light.

PAMM has commissioned Mirza to produce a new work for its double-height gallery. For this project, A C I D G E S T, he will create a specialized technical system that will transmit an electrical current through speakers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that act in coordination with one another so that different colors are activated by corresponding noise frequencies. This system will produce a choreographed experience of sound and light based on a concrete poem the artist has created, which serves as a score for a dynamic installation that redefines our phenomenological experience of the space.

Within Genres

Monday, Apr 30, 2018 various times - English

Informed by these interests in art history, the current presentation of the permanent collection—installed thematically within two rooms on the first floor and four rooms on the second—is organized around the historical criteria of genres within Western painting and the traditional hierarchy of genres that developed out of the Renaissance period and was promoted within European art academies up through the 19th century.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Monday, Apr 30, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

The Exile Experience: Journey to Freedom is a pictorial account of the struggles that the Cuban exile community has endured since Fidel Castro's rise to power, and the successes they have achieved in the United States. Having covered the Cuban exile community and its struggle for freedom extensively throughout the years, Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company now present this journalistic chronology, which showcases the spirit and accomplishments of the Cuban American community. The permanent exhibition is housed at the College’s National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower, itself central to the story of Cubans in the United States.

MDC’s Freedom Tower was operated by the U.S. Government as a reception center for Cuban refugees from 1962 to 1974. “The building is significant because it represents the important story of the Cuban exodus to America and resettlement during the Cold War,” reports the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has also called the Freedom Tower the “Ellis Island of the South.” Though it operated in that capacity for only 12 years, the building has become an icon representing the faith that democracy brought to troubled lives, the generosity of the American people and a hopeful beginning that assured thousands a new life in a new land.

Between a view and a milestone

Monday, Apr 30, 2018 various times - English

Between a view and a milestone presents works by ArtCenter/South Florida’s studio residents that offer contemplative meditations on place. While place can imply a certain level of geographic specificity, determining placehood can be difficult and requires certain physical and intangible elements to make it so. The exhibition’s title refers to a visual device used in landscape painting, in which the painter includes an object in the foreground as a means of framing the view of the landscape. Places call for this sort of demarcation, but they also call for a more emotive connection that is highly dependent upon the individual occupying it. Places are felt as much as they are physically constructed.

Show more >>

In this exhibition, perspective– both spatial and interpretive– plays an important role in framing the places these works address. A video game finds its protagonist navigating through an amorphous landscape that simultaneously inspires awe and dread. A set of sculptures comprised of materials native to Miami’s urban topography are used to further investigate ideas of mobility and labor. A lone figure in a grassy field desperately bobbing for apples to the sound of a mournful poem considers how recent events and contentious histories can oftentimes define the places we live in. The works in this exhibition attempt to understand the evocative nature of place and invite more nuanced explorations of time, memory and identity.
