Florida Grand Opera Names Sissi Fleitas New Ambassador

By Francisco Salazar

The Florida Grand Opera has named Sissi Fleitas one of its newest ambassadors.

In this role, Fleitas will focus on educating Spanish-speaking youth about the transformative power of opera, drawing on her deep-rooted passion for the arts and cultural preservation.

Fleitas is a renowned Cuban-American actress known for her vibrant career in television, theater, and film. She made her stage debut at the age of four and began the TV show “Sabado Conmigo” on Cubavisión at age 15. She became the co-host of Univision’s “Sabado Gigante.”

In a statement, Maria Todaro, General Director and CEO of FGO said, “When Sissi approached FGO about joining as an ambassador, it made perfect sense — it was a symphony that we couldn’t ignore. Her commitment to arts education and her ability to connect with the Spanish-speaking community make her an invaluable advocate for our mission to make opera accessible to all.”

Fleitas added, “I am honored to be an ambassador for a cause that resonates deeply for me: the preservation of arts and culture and the transformative power of opera, especially for our children. With your support, we can enrich our communities with more access to opera and the rich stories that the art form shares.”
