(Miami, Florida) – The Florida Grand Opera never fails to excite and delight a demanding Miami audience with its vibrant performances, season after season. The outstanding production seen during the debut of Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto this past Saturday at the Adrienne Arsht Center continued to win the heart of eager spectators through an excellent and truly remarkable performance. Rigolettohas endured a nonstop, successful 150 year trajectory, and the Florida Grand Opera only honored such untainted path. The piece was mounted flawlessly to lure the audience to experience, along with the characters, obsession, mockery, desire and revenge – all compelling feelings accurately depicted in each of the three acts. Nadine Sierra, the beautiful soprano who played Gilda, Rigoletto’s daughter, enamored the audience with a delicately sung Caro Nome that hypnotized during act one scene two. A little laughter and joy during act one in a brimming theatre, gradually transformed into sorrow and grief, as a tragic Rigoletto ending was dreadfully witnessed.
The Season, which opened with Federico Moreno Torrobas’ zarzuela, Luisa Fernanda and continued with Giacomo Puccini’s La Rondine, will close with a timeless love story that has shaped passionate, heavy hearts throughout the years – Roméo et Juliette opens April 21st at the Adrienne Arsht Center.
