Starring soprano Ana María Martínez, this story about a glamorous diva on a life-changing adventure on the Amazon is suffused by the entrancing allure of magical realism. Florencia Grimaldi, a renowned diva, is engaged to perform at the opera house of Manaus, Brazil. Traveling there by boat, she’s consumed by longing for her long-lost lover, who she hopes will be awaiting her.
Sung in Spanish with English subtitles, this magnificent work is illuminated by the sumptuous, romantic music of Daniel Catán, and full of brilliant characters you’ll never forget.
Florencia en el Amazonas is on stage November 13-28
