Daniel Catán’s ode to the magical realism of Gabriel García Márquez about an opera singer returning home and trying to recapture her first true love. As she journeys on the Amazon, she hopes to be reacquainted with her true love who has since vanished. An all-Spanish speaking cast brings this opera to life and marks a series of important Company debuts including soprano Elaine Alvarez as Florencia Grimaldi, soprano Maria Fernanda Castillo as Rosalba, mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala as Paula, and baritone Luis Alejandro Orozco as Riolobo. Tenor Daniel Montenegro makes his welcome return as Arcadio, last seen as Luis in 2015’s El Pasado Nunca se Termina. Conductor Joseph Mechavich makes his return to the podium for these performances that are directed by Candace Evans in her house debut. Florencia en el Amazonas will be sung in Spanish with English translations above the stage.
