A transformative journey guided by enchantment and devotion.
Described by the San Diego City Beat as “a game changer,” Florencia en el Amazonas offers a nod through Marcela Fuentes-Berain’s libretto to Gabriel García Márquez’s magical realism, with a score by Daniel Catán that ingeniously connects operatic tradition to the sounds of the story’s South American jungle setting. Christopher Franklin conducts the Yale Philharmonia and Candace Evans directs the cast in a new production of the first Spanish-language opera commissioned by celebrated U.S. opera companies.
The performance will be sung in Spanish with English supertitles.
