Florida Grand Opera- La Rondine- January 21st-February 4th

In 1913, Giacomo Puccini was approached in Vienna about composing an operetta, and having come to know and admire the work of Franz Leh├ír, he accepted the challenge. La rondine’s premiere took place at the opera house in Monte Carlo in 1917, and although it never attained the popularity of many of Puccini’s other works, it has recently enjoyed considerable new interest, attracting leading singers in productions at major opera houses. Magda’s aria “Chi il bel sogno di Doretta” is one of Puccini’s most beautiful and is justifiably famous. La rondine means “the swallow” and refers to a prediction made early in the opera that although Magda may spread her wings in search of love and romance, she, like the swallow, will return to the place and life that she knows.

Tatiana Fontes at SET- January 20th

Today most 12 year-old girls would tell you their favorite band is Hannah Montana, but if you asked Tatiana Fontes at that same age, she would've said Duran Duran. However this is not surprising considering she's been a part of the music scene her entire life. Although Tatiana had an obvious affinity for music early on, her career took a different direction at the age of 15 when she began receiving offers for modeling gigs in her hometown. Even though modeling wasn’t her biggest passion, she liked the opportunities it offered. Tatiana went on to be an international model doing major campaigns, commercials, editorials, fashion shows, and billboards.
