Florida Grand Opera closes its season at the Adrienne Arsht Center with Puccini’s Madama Butterfly (April 25 through May 9.) The opening-night after party was held this past Saturday in the Peacock Foundation Studio. In attendance among the elegant black tie guests were: Robert M. Heuer, General Director/CEO of Florida Grand Opera, Dr. and Mrs. J. Morton Robinson (Jane Robinson is President of the Board of Directors of FGO), Board member Robert Gang and his wife Adrienne (Mr. Gang’s law firm, Greenberg Traurig were partial production sponsors), Crown Jewel members, Randy Gage, Ralph Lutrin of the Audrey Love Charitable Foundation and Mr. and Mrs. Roger Sturgeon – Isobel Sturgeon looking stunning in a red satin Madama Butterfly gown created by local couture fashion designer, Yoly Munoz. Also spotted at the party were socialite philanthropists Ruby Bacardi, Ana and Alvaro Varela and Dr. and Mrs. Sanford Ziff (of the Ziff Ballet Opera House).

The event paid a special tribute to Maestro Stewart Robertson, stepping down at the end of this season after 11 euphonious years as Music Director and Conductor at Florida Grand Opera.
