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

well acted, though some performances were exemplary. Bruce Rauscher as Johnny Friendly and Christopher Herring as Charley Mallow stood out in their intensity and commitment to their roles. Noteworthy were Daniel Corey and Caitlin Shea. The " i could a been a contender" scene worked very well, tho Jack Powers seemed to be missing the necessary intensity and passion to really make it pop.
The American Century Theater will present the stage version of the 1954 movie classic about union violence and corruption on the New York docks, written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Budd Schulberg.
On the Waterfront is not recommended for audiences younger than 12.
