Ticket sales for Florida Grand Opera's 2006-07 season set new records for attendance and revenue generated.

The company announced this week that its total ticket sales revenue of $7,230,000 represents a 38% increase over last season's figure of $5,226,400 (which was itself a record).

In total, 117,346 seats were filled for the 2006-07 season, which consisted of 53 performances of six productions; the previous season's attendance was 91,321. Ticket sales for the season reached 91.4% of capacity, with nearly half of the performances sold out.

FGO's new production of Verdi's AÇda, the company's first in the new Ziff Ballet Opera House at Miami's Carnival Center for the Performing Arts, was sold out for all 12 performances.

Robert M. Heuer, FGO general director & CEO, said, "The move to the Ziff Ballet Opera House at Carnival Center provided our Miami audiences with the kind of facility our Fort Lauderdale audience has enjoyed at the Broward Center for several years now."

He added that the new productions of AÇda, La sonnambula and Anna Karenina would not have been possible without the new venue.
