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

As part of its 12th International Festival of Hispanic Theater, Teatro de la Luna presents Grupo TeaTeatro from Buenos Aires, Argentina. About the play: “…an homage to Federico García Lorca, recreating his magic universe through an encounter with the ghosts of his characters…” A woman is thrown into the abyss of García Lorca’s stylized and poetic universe… she narrates, sings, recites, shouts and whispers… Under this woman’s skin live the ghosts of the Granada poet’s characters, who relive their ultimate, solitary hours.
In Spanish with live English dubbing.
