On April 28, and May 1, 4 and 5, Ana María Martínez stars as Florencia in Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas at Florida Grand Opera.

Inspired by the writings of the great Gabriel García Márquez (One Hundred Years of Solitude), Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas is one of the most lyrical and melodious new operas of the past 30 years, embraced by critics and audiences everywhere it has played. This story of a Brazilian soprano’s emotionally fraught journey back to her homeland offers a brilliant display of magical realism—and pushes the operatic form to new limits of imagination.

The rest of the cast includes Steven LaBrie as Riolobo, Cecilia Violetta López as Rosalba,
Andrew Bidlack as Arcadio, Mariya Kaganskaya as Paula and William Lee Bryan as Álvaro. This José María Condemi production counts with Ramón Tebar on the orchestra podium.

Rusalka, la ópera más querida de Dvořák, va a ser representada en el Teatro Colón de Buenos Aires por primera vez. Ana María Martínez cantará el papel principal en esta ocasión especial.

Ana María Martínez debutó en el papel de Rusalka en el Festival de Glyndebourne en 2009 y desde entonces se ha convertido en uno de sus papeles más reconocibles. Seen and Heard International escribió sobre su Rusalka: “Ana María Martínez muestra un control excepcional del papel. La conocida “Canción a la Luna” (“Měsičku na nebi hlubokém”) del primer acto fue conmovedora, con Martínez mostrando un instinto excepcional para el fraseo y el control de las dinámicas, y enseñando al mismo tiempo la riqueza de su timbre.” [“Ana María Martínez shows exceptional command of the role. The familiar “Song to the Moon” (“Měsičku na nebi hlubokém”) from the first act was touching, with Martinez displaying remarkable phrasing instincts and control of dynamics, but also showing the sheer richness of her voice.”]

La acompañarán en el escenario Dmitry Golovnin, Ante Jerkunica, Elisabeth Canis y Marina Silva.
Las funciones, con Julian Kuerti dirigiendo, tendrán lugar los días 7, 10, 11, 12 y 14 de noviembre.
