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

Caryl Churchill’s Obie-award winning carnivalesque satire, set first in 1879 Africa and then in 1979 London, follows the members of a British colonial family as they confront, manipulate, and unravel the absurdities of Victorian sexual and gender repression in the name of Queen and Country.
Due to adult language and themes, this show is not recommended for audience members younger than 13.
