On Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, Florida Grand Opera’s top donors gathered at the Paragon 13 Coconut Grove movie theater for a complimentary, private screening of the new opera movie Quartet, which features Dame Maggie Smith.
“Florida Grand Opera has adopted a new vision, not only in its business model and artistic direction, but also in its donor relations efforts,” said Susan T. Danis, FGO’s new General Director and CEO. “We look forward to offering donors truly engaging and entertaining events to further solidify our relationships with them as members of the Florida Grand Opera family.”
Patrons where welcomed into a private lounge for a pre-screening reception featuring light bites and wine service. Following a warm welcome by Danis, the film screening began at 7:30 p.m., delighting guests in the story of retired opera singers who come together each year to celebrate Verdi’s birthday with an operatic concert.
