Colombia, early 1900s. Florencia Grimaldi, a famous opera singer, embarks anonymously on a voyage down the Amazon river, hoping to be reunited with the lover she left behind. On the boat with her are a young journalist; a couple feeling the strain of their long marriage; the boat’s captain; the captain’s nephew, who falls in love with the journalist; and a man who is a rather mystical presence.

Inspired by the writings of Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Catán’s gorgeously lyrical opera was the first Spanish-language opera to be commissioned by a major U.S. opera company, and has been performed worldwide since its 1996 premiere in Houston.

Join Madison Opera on this truly enchanting journey.
