November in the U.S. is a time to gear up for the onslaught of the holiday season, while pausing to show gratitude for what we have been given throughout the year. What better way to acknowledge this great American tradition, and celebrate our bounty, than by sharing our time in the company of friends and family enjoying art, history, music and more at The District in Fort Lauderdale. This month, you can spend time sipping tea and listening to opera, take in some performance art with the Aluminum Show, cruise down the New River and learn the history of the “Rum Runners,” or discover the rich history and art of the Seminole Tribe. And these are just a smattering of all there is to do, see and discover this November at The District.

To enjoy all of the great events and happenings taking place in November, check out the ones we have selected for you below, or visit for a complete listing.

Florida Grand Opera’s 75th Season Preview
In celebration of FGO’s 75th continuous year of bringing the finest opera to South Florida, a season has been designed with something for everyone. Each of the operas will resonate with a variety of communities. The season will feature the traditional period productions and begin with an audience favorite, “Carmen” (Dec. 1 & Dec. 3, 2016). Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” (Feb. 9 & Feb. 11, 2017), presents a tale of universal human truths, and returns to the Broward Center’s stages after a 17-year absence. Culminating the 2016–2017 season will be Giuseppe Verdi’s “Un ballo in maschera” (“A Masked Ball”) (May 11 & May 13, 2017), the story of a king who is conspired against and, ultimately, betrayed by his most trusted friend. There are two kinds of people: those who love opera and those who don’t yet know they do! Learn more >
