  • Florida Grand Opera
    According to the Florida Grand Opera's Brendan Glynn, "If Verdi says to put in 20 violins, we do." Such dedication to the details has kept patrons coming back to FGO for 73 seasons, making it the seventh oldest opera company in the U.S.?and garnering the seventh largest audiences in the country. Split between two waterfront venues in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, its world-class performances draw in tens of thousands of Florida residents each year. The box office has also logged ticket buyers from 39 states and 31 foreign countries, as well as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington, DC, signaling their reputation's international reach. In 2013-2014, FGO's talented casts will sound the notes of Marvin David Levy's Mourning Becomes Electra, Giuseppe Verdi's Nabucco, Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, and Jules Massenet's Thais. As intimidating as grand opera can seem to the uninitiated, the FGO eases introductions with a lively Twitter feed, a candid Facebook wall, and even its own iPhone app, which helps newbies get up to speed on opera's lurid centuries of love, lust, murder, and suicide. The FGO's FAQ page similarly dispels common misconceptions, revealing that you may wear jeans to the opera and that wearing 3D glasses won't actually improve your experience.

    Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.
