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

This was an awesome show. My first visit to wolftrap and i throughly enjoyed it. I wish I had gone to the evening showing instead of the 2pm show simply because this play would have been spectacular at night with the lights and glittery costumes.
Young Peggy Sawyer comes to New York in search of fame and fortune and catches the eye of one of the most powerful directors on Broadway, Julian Marsh. As can only happen in a Broadway musical full of intrigue and plot twists, Peggy is discovered, hired, fired, and eventually becomes the star of the show. In between are thrilling dance numbers, fabulous sets and costumes and some of the most famous songs ever heard on a Broadway stage including “You’re Getting to Be a Habit With Me,” “We’re in the Money,” “I Only Have Eyes for You,” “The Lullaby of Broadway,” “About a Quarter To Nine,” “Shuffle off to Buffalo,” and “42nd Street.”
