If you are looking for a magical journey, look no further than Florencia in the Amazon- Pensacola Opera’s take on Daniel Catan’s transformative opera. Florencia shimmers with passionate melodies and sumptuous orchestrations reminiscent of Puccini and Debussy. This is one you won’t want to miss!
So what’s the story about?
They say that only the stage brings her to life. Florencia Grimaldi – an opera singer of great renown – is returning to her hometown of Manaus in search of Cristobal, the love she left behind 20 years ago. She and the other passengers aboard the El Dorado soon learn what happens when fate meets fantasy.
Why should you go?
A fantasy, an illusion. One word: projections. The stage setup is seemingly simple, but what makes this production stand out is the unique version of stage director John Hoomes (Nashville Opera) and video & lighting designer Barry Steele. As the story opens, the shimmering Amazon comes to life with full stage projections and members of the opera chorus slowly emerging, creating a constant wave of movement.
