In Florencia in the Amazon, a famous opera singer embarks upon an enchanted riverboat journey up the famous South American river in a tale inspired by the magical realism of Nobel Prize-winning Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez (Love in the Time of Cholera). Along the way, the opera's female lead, Florencia Grimaldi, hopes to track down her long-lost lover, but her fellow travelers are beset by storms and become carried deeper into the rain forest, guided by a mystical river creature. The first Spanish-language commission by a major U.S. opera company, Florencia in the Amazon features a shimmering, romantic score by Daniel Catán and a libretto by Marcela Fuentes-Berain. Two-time Grammy Award-winning American soprano Christine Goerke takes the starring role in this Washington National Opera premiere. Learn More

I absolutely love Little Theater of Alexandria. They always do a great job. These are plays you could imagine seeing on Broadway on a bigger stage. The acting/directing/producing is that good. I didn't know what to expect in this play as I've never seen or heard of it before. The storyline was very interesting and the constant twists kept me on the edge of my seat. The directing and stage was phenomenal! It is so amazing was can be done on such a small stage. The actors were all good except for the two male investigators. I never felt like they were truly in character and their acting fell flat. It is a shame because they were the entire play. Will this stop me from going back to LTA? Nope! I love the place!

About the Ticket Supplier: The Little Theatre of AlexandriaFounded in 1934, The Little Theatre of Alexandria began as a small play-reading group in Old Town Alexandria under the Presidency of Miss Mary Lindsey. Full productions ensued, and in 1939 the group bought a rickety former blacksmith's shop located in Ramsey Alley, between Lee and Fairfax streets, for rehearsal space and construction of sets and costumes. Since 1934, the theatre has mounted over 300 productions.
Today, LTA is the oldest award-winning theater in the Washington metro area and one of only a few community theaters in the country with its own building and an ambitious 7-show season. Proud of their rich heritage, LTA is excited about its future. They may be a little theater, but their expectations are gigantic.
