In 1945, a group of opera and music lovers in Fort Lauderdale established The Opera Guild, Inc. of Fort Lauderdale (OGFL) with the purpose of providing funds to bring fully staged opera productions to Fort Lauderdale following their performances in Miami. The Opera Guild of Greater Miami was founded in 1941, and was bringing many of the Metropolitan Opera’s leading artists to perform in their productions.
