Item Description

Incredible opportunity for two [exclusive and not available to the general public] tickets to the LA Opera presentation of 

FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS

 on November 22, 2014.  These tickets are for front row seats in the lodge – two seats off the center aisle.  This opera is not one of the old “war horses” but a fairly new opera performed in Spanish with English subtitles on the overhead screen. 

OVERVIEW

A steamboat passage through the fabled rainforest becomes a mystical voyage of discovery, each passenger harboring secret hopes of what the trip will bring. Among them, a famous prima donna hopes to recapture the great love of her life. Reality and fantasy intertwine as the dangerous splendors of the Amazon test the travelers’ preconceptions of their hopes and dreams.

The sensational Chilean soprano Verónica Villarroel returns as Florencia, joined by a stellar cast that also includes fast-rising soprano Lisette Oropesa. A ravishingly beautiful score by Daniel Catán, the beloved composer of Il Postino,shimmers with passionate melodies and sumptuous orchestrations reminiscent of Puccini and Debussy. Inspired by the writings of Gabriel García Márquez,Florencia en el Amazonas paints an intoxicating portrait of the transformative nature of love.
