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

“A ripped-from-the-headlines drama” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
redshirts explores a sports scandal involving college football players at a Division I university and investigates the multifaceted social behavior of student athletes. Eighteen-year-old Dante Green is an all-star running back at Tennessee Southern, but is less than stellar in the classroom. His academic integrity is called into question when an English professor accuses Dante of plagiarism. Suddenly caught between pride and insecurity, Dante, along with his coach and teammates, are at a moral crossroads. The line between right and wrong is blurred as these characters tackle the conflict between commercial success and academic integrity.
This production marks the world premiere.
