Maryland Opera Studio presents "Florencia en el Amazonas"

Times vary by date

Location: Kay Theatre, Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center

Join the Maryland Opera Studio on a magical boat ride that celebrates the transformative power of art and the resilience of the human spirit in their spring production of Daniel Catán's Florencia en el Amazonas. Journey down the Amazon River aboard the steamboat El Dorado as the opera explores themes of longing, self-discovery and the connection between art and the natural world. Inspired by the magical realism found in the works of Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Florencia en el Amazonas follows the story of Florencia Grimaldi, a famous soprano returning home to sing at the opera house in Manaus with hopes that the performance will attract her love Cristóbal, a butterfly hunter who has gone missing in the jungle. 


Under the direction of Craig Kier, the Maryland Opera Studio is dedicated to the future of opera. Preparing the next generation of great singers and offering performances ranging from classic repertoire to provocative new works, it is building contemporary audiences for opera and advancing the art form to sustain those audiences.
