Utah Opera Florencia en el Amazonas Tickets

The city of Florence in Italy has been considered the epitome of the arts and high social life, what with it being the bedrock of the famous Renaissance movement that redefined European culture from the 14th century onward. The Amazonian region of South American has spawned many a legend including the one of a namesake matriarchal tribe of women that used their uncanny robust bodies and keen hunting skills to flip the commonly perceived masculine superiority on its head. The mighty Amazon River running through dense tropical jungles has given rise to a diverse and complex ecosystem that teems with millions of species of plant and animal life. Where in the real world, the untamed beauty of the Amazon and the ordered aestheticism of Florence are separated by the Atlantic, the opera Florencia en el Amazonas seeks to create a marriage between the two in the realm of magical realism. Based on the libretto composed by Marcela Fuentes-Berain, the opera has been performed on a regular basis since its premier in 1996.

About Utah Opera Florencia en el Amazonas

The opera, spread over two acts, explores the sentiments of the protagonist Florencia Grimaldi who is returning from her operatic adventure into the heart of Europe back to her homeland of the Amazon Jungle. She gears up to deliver a performance that she hopes will lure her lover, who goes by the name of Cristobal and is a butterfly hunter. As she suspects that he has lost his way in the jungle, she makes her way down the famous river on a steamboat called El Dorado all the while serenading the passenger on board. However, when she is not singing, she keeps to herself, lost in the thoughts of reuniting with her lover. It is in this setting that the conjunction of magical realism first comes about between the stark world and the musical river realm, transpiring in a storm brought upon by the river gods. Act II opens with the passenger trying to recover from the ravages of the storm, with Florencia trying to come to grips with her own state of existence whilst also sensing Cristobal's presence close by.
