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

My expectations were far exceeded as the actors were both fantastic and hilarious. You don't have to know Shakespeare to follow the plot or appreciate the humor that included a modern twist. I'd definitely recommend this show to friends.
What happens when four young Athenians run off into a forest—a forest where the Fairie King and Queen “keep their revels” and a troupe of well-meaning amateur actors rehearse for an impending royal wedding?
