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

The actors and actresses were great and the play was funny. Surprising, ‘As You Like It’ had singing, which was excellent. Every seat at Folger Theatre is a seat and the sound system is awesome. I had no problem receiving my tickets at will call and customer service at Folger Theatre was extremely wonderful. I would definitely attend another Goldstar event.
The acclaimed Folger Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It. Banished Rosalind finds Orlando and a world of passionate possibility in the Forest of Arden. Enchantment abounds as chance encounters blossom into the entanglement of love. The cast includes Amanda Quaid, Joseph Marcell (of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fame) and Sarah Marshall.
