By Francisco Salazar

The Florida Grand Opera’s General Director and CEO Susan T. Danis has announced her resignation.

Danis has been the leader of the opera company for more than a decade and announced that she was leaving to pursue another opportunity. However, she will remain with the company through a transition period to help ensure that the coming season is off to a great start.

Danis began her tenure with the company in 2012 and has produced popular traditional grand operas as well as award-winning educational and engagement programs. She also brought such works as “The Passenger,” “Florencia en el Amazonas,” “Before Night Falls,” “A Streetcar Named Desire,” and “Fellow Travelers.”

In a statement, Danis said, “It has been an honor to lead FGO for the past eleven years. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished, and I thank the community for its support. It’s time for a new leader to take FGO to even greater heights as it approaches its 85th Anniversary.”
