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
