Several South Florida performing arts recently announced their 2022-23 seasons, including Florida Grand Opera, Slow Burn Theatre Co. and Boca Stage.
Mark your calendars for these exciting productions.
Florida Grand Opera
Florida Grand Opera (FGO), kicks off its season Nov. 12 – 15 at the Arsht Center with a special production of Dominic Cimarosa's comedy “El Matrimonio Secreto” (“The Secret Marriage”). Originally planned for 2020, FGO's version is set among the world of the hard-working Cuban diaspora in 1980s Miami Beach with a specially commissioned Spanish translation from the original Italian.
Next, they offer a double bill: Puccini’s beloved one-act family drama, “Gianni Schicchi,” and the contemporary sequel “Buoso’s Ghost” by Michael Ching, Jan. 28 – Feb. 11, 2023. Puccini’s often-performed “Tosca” follows, March 18 – April 15, and the season concludes with Rossini’s familiar “The Barber of Seville,” April 29 – May 20. The final three programs will be presented at both the Arsht Center in Miami and the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Slow Burn Theatre Co. plans five big Broadway musicals for the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale: “Little Shop of Horrors,” Oct. 14 – 30; “Footloose,” Dec. 16 – Jan. 1, 2023; “Honeymoon in Vegas – The Musical,” Feb. 3 – 19; Disney’s “Mary Poppins,” March 24 – April 9; and Disney’s “Newsies,” June 9 – 25.
