In Endless Waiting Rooms

Part of the Community Conversations series

Join Florida Grand Opera (FGO) and the Florida International University (FIU) School of International and Public Affairs for an afternoon of personal reflections on the experience of leaving home and traveling to a strange, new land. Punctuated by music from FGO’s upcoming production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s celebrated work The Consul, this program will take the audience on a journey from Europe to Cuba to Haiti and finally to the Middle East. Together we will pause and reflect on the struggles faced by individuals and communities who fled violence, political repression, or abject poverty and embraced the challenges and hopes found within the Miami landscape.

Panelists include:

  • Rebecca Friedman, FIU Russian History and European Studies professor
  • Allan Hall, Holocaust survivor
  • Dr. Julie Maykowski, FGO’s Director of Artistic Administration and Head of the Young Artist Program
  • More panelists to come
