US opera retreats from hinterlandmain
Larry Johnson at South Florida Classical Review reports that Florida Grand Opera is pulling out of Fort Lauderdale.
Susan T. Danis, FGO boss, said if she doesn’t receive $400,000 from local donors by January 31, FL gets cut off.
‘It’s not the way I want to do it,’ said Danis. ‘But I’ve tried everything else.’
Losing Fort Lauderdale would confine FGO to Miami base and a shrinking supporter base.
