About Florencia en el Amazonas

Sung in Spanish and inspired by the magical realism of Gabriel García Márquez, Mexican composer Daniel Catán’s 1996 opera tells the enchanting story of a Brazilian opera diva who returns to her homeland to perform at the legendary opera house of Manaus—and to search for her lost lover, who has vanished into the jungle. The Met premiere stars soprano Ailyn Pérez as Florencia Grimaldi, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to lead a spellbinding new production by Mary Zimmerman that brings the mysterious and magical realm of the Amazon to the Met stage. A distinguished ensemble of artists portray the diva’s fellow travelers on the river boat to Manaus, including soprano 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.

See it if into love and loss, while cruising in the Brazilian jungle. A great set and amazing puppets of natural elements. Romantic, sung in Spanish.

Don’t see it if well... Act 1 was on the slow side, but Act 2 turned irresistible.

Lush score, Creative production, Great singing

See it if you like Puccini-esque soaring lyrical operas, directed with originality, color and whimsy (including puppets & wild costumes), a great cast

Don’t see it if you're looking for a strong libretto, the storyline is rather dull and the dialog is basic, the whole thing never manages to fully take off.

Slow even for opera, Great staging, Great singing, Those puppets, though

See it if It's GORGEOUS. Like legit stunning. And the puppetry is next level. You'll be entertained. But it wasn't quite what I was hoping for.

Don’t see it if The story is a slow/thin, &the singing, while very very good, is ... well, my companion (rightly) said "the songs all sound the same."
