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
Written, interpreted & directed by Saulo García.
As part of its 12th International Festival of Hispanic Theater, Teatro de la Luna presents Compañía Saulo García, Inc. from Colombia.
In a vacant, solitary space, we are surprised by the presence of a juggler, who not only fills the space with his antics, but insures us that no one will be alone and all will know liberty. We become immersed in his effective humor and wisdom, as, like a good trapeze artist, he invites us to jump into the unknown without a net.
In Spanish with live English dubbing.
