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

“Simply perfection” – BroadwayWorld
“The show’s a beauty to behold … strikingly inventive.” – DC Theatre Scene
Lost lovers and their unruly servants converge and conspire in this music-filled feast of love – lost and found, mistaken and put right. Shipwrecked and separated from her brother, Viola encounters Orsino, much in love with the Lady Olivia. In Shakespeare’s romantic-comedy, mistaken identity delightfully combines with the pranks of Sir Toby and other rascals to reveal love in all of its guises.
Directed by Robert Richmond (Henry V at the Folger), the celebrated cast includes Rachel Pickup, Emily Trask, Michael Brusasco, Craig Wallace, Tonya Beckman, James Konicek, Louis Butelli, Richard Sheridan Willis, Chris Genebach, Joshua Morgan, and William Vaughan, in a romance bursting with music, dances and flights of fancy.
