Florida Grand Opera has postponed Wagners Tristan and Isolde for a season and will be performing Massanets Thaïs in its place for the 2013-2014 season.
The decision to wait was made when the company could not find a production to fit stages in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, General Director Susan T. Danis said.
Since I accepted the position of General Director of Florida Grand Opera I have stated repeatedly and unequivocally that my goal is to present great opera, including exciting productions with world-class singers and thought-provoking repertoire. This community deserves nothing less, Danis said.
The French opera Thaïs tells the story of a seductive Egyptian courtesan and a monk whose obsession compromises his virtue. The show will be performed May 3-17 in 2014.
Danis said the company plans to perform Tristan and Isolde in all its glory for the 2014-2015 season.
