This season kicks off with the American classic, A Streetcar Named Desire, by André Previn. Based on Tennessee Williams’ play, the opera follows the downward spiral of former southern belle Blanche Dubois, who after having experienced a series of personal losses, leaves behind her wealth and privilege and moves into a run-down apartment with her sister and brother-in-law. Filled with soaring melodies and an orchestral score that puts you right in the middle of a New Orleans hot and steamy summer, A Streetcar Named Desire is a true contemporary verismo masterpiece. Returning to the FGO stage, to sing the snobbish and dislocated Blanche Dubois is beloved company favorite and Miami native, Elizabeth Caballero. After a triumphant performance of Riolobo in FGO’s production of Florencia en el Amazonas, baritone Steven LaBrie returns to FGO to sing the role of the brutish Stanley Kowalski. FGO is also excited to welcome soprano Rebecca Krynski Cox to make her company debut, singing the role of the calm and gentle Stella Kowalski.
