Welcome to the South Florida Opera Scene. This is my first post, so I'll start with a word on the purpose of this blog. There are many opportunities to experience opera in its many forms in South Florida, but not everybody is aware of all our available options. I will compile a list of upcoming performances, both live and telecast, fully staged, concerts, and recitals. When available, I will post information about upcoming performances, as well as discussions of past performances. From time to time, I will showcase various artists, both local talent and international stars.
Our first upcoming event is Saturday's Met Live in HD screening of Don Giovanni, available on about two dozen movie theater screens throughout South Florida. This new production, under the baton of Fabio Luisi, stars Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien as the Don.
The stellar cast also includes Luca Pisaroni as Leporello, Marina Rebeka as Donna Anna, Ramon Vargas as Don Ottavio, Barbara Frittoli as Donna Elvira, and Mojca Erdmann as Zerlina. Joshua Bloom is Masetto, and Stefan Kocan is the Commendatore.
