Radmila Lolly is Florida Grand Opera’s Newest Board Member

By David Salazar

Radmila Lolly has joined the board of the Florida Grand Opera.

Lolly is a Russian-American artist with a varied career that has seen her make incursions into music, fashion, and literature. As a musician, she has released a series of major albums including “IV Stories at the Standard Hotel” and “Wonderland.” Some of her major hits include “U R Moving Me” and “Tonight.” She has dressed such artists as Gayle King, Natti Natasha, and Bebe Rexha, and recently debuted as a writer with “Life is a Bridge.”

“Radmila’s accomplishments in fashion and sports will help us reach new audiences and bring a contemporary flair to our historic institution,” said recently appointed General Director Maria Todaro in an official press release. “Her creative vision and diverse experiences are exactly what we need to engage with the next generation of opera lovers.”

“Art is limitless – any art form can be combined,” added Lolly. “We live in 2024; we don’t know if Mozart and Puccini would have lived today what kind of music they would have created. I believe in art that moves people; it’s not about perfection – perfection doesn’t exist, but emotions that follow the melody are the power of music.”
