May 12th ~ All Ivy+ Florida Grand Opera Night hosted by Yale Club of South Florida
May 12, 2015 | 7:00 pm till 10:00 pm
All Ivy+ presented The Florida Grand Opera Night on Tuesday, May 12, 2015. This event was hosted by the Yale Club of South Florida.
It was a wonderful time to mix and mingle in Florida Grand Opera’s VIP Donor Lounge before the opera with a light reception, including complimentary wine, soft drinks, and champagne.
To further enhance our opera experience a member of the staff gave a short overview of The Consul, and just moments before the curtain raised, we were whisked on the stage for a quick tour. You could feel the backstage electricity just moments before the opera begins!
Then it was off to our amazing seats to join the performance. During the intermissions, we returned to the lounge for more refreshments and another chance to greet fellow alums.
About the Opera:Winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical and Pulitzer Prize for Music and named a Miami Herald Best Bet for 2015, The Consul, set in an unnamed totalitarian country, follows the efforts of wife and mother, Magda Sorel. Magda is frantic to obtain visas that will enable her family to escape from persecution by an oppressive government that is trying to arrest her revolutionary husband. The apparent indifference she endures erodes what little hope she clings to, until a tragic and desperate deed concludes both the production and her terrible saga.
