Florencia en el Amazonas (12A)

MET Opera Live in HD 23-24

A woman neels down in a white dress, surrounded by butterflies

Sung in Spanish and inspired by the magical realism of Gabriel García Márquez, Mexican
composer Daniel Catán’s 1996 opera focuses on an opera diva, Florencia Grimaldi. 

Florencia Grimaldi returns to her native Brazil to perform and to search for her lost lover, who has vanished into the jungle.

The Met premiere stars soprano Ailyn Pérez as Florencia in a new production by Mary
that brings the mystical realm of the Amazon to the Met stage. The distinguished
ensemble of artists portraying the diva’s fellow travelers on the river boat to Manaus features
Gabriella Reyes as the journalist Rosalba, bass-baritone Greer Grimsley as the ship’s captain, baritone Mattia Olivieri as his enigmatic first mate, tenor Mario Chang as the captain’s nephew Arcadio, and mezzo-soprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera and baritone Michael Chioldi as the feuding couple Paula and Álvaro, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium.
