“Florencia en el Amazonas” at Florida Grand Opera
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.
