Florida Grand Opera does a random act of culture at MIA

Let's face it: Miami is pretty much the last place anyone expects to see a random act of kindness, much less one of culture that doesn't involve a covert sex act in a public bus or a parking lot off Biscayne.

But passengers at Miami International Airport were treated to quite a surprise and highbrow burst of the arts last Wednesday when several among them began singing.

Members of the Florida Grand Opera emerged from coffee shops and ticketing lines to perform two-minute operatic selections at six different airport gates, foregoing ball gowns and bow ties to take center gate in casual clothes and a lot less makeup.

The six performances were all part of the Knight Foundation's Random Acts of Culture series, classical versions of flash mobs and videobombs.
