Details of Florencia En El Amazonas and the Ticket Luck value
Florencia en el Amazonas is a two-act opera composed by Daniel Catan known for his highly lyrical neo-Romantic style. It features elements of magical realism, similar to the style of Garcia Marquez, using a libretto written by Marcela Fuentes- Berain.
Though its characters are based on Garcia Marquez’s work Love in Time of Cholera, the opera’s story comes along independently. It follows the tale of an aging opera singer called Florencia Grimaldi, who wants to revisit her homeland in the hope of uniting once more with her long-lost love, and so takes plans a steamboat journey through the Amazon River. Her love-interest was a butterfly collector who once disappeared in the mysterious jungle where she is now destined to go. With the passing time, the journey seems to be beset by foul water, pink rain and threat of a tragic cholera epidemic, while all along she is made to discover the power of love. As the singer and her travel companions, move deeper into the jungle, they receive many revelations, till at last the spirit of the diva transforms into an enormous emerald butterfly.
Florencia was first co-commissioned by the Los Angeles Opera, Seattle Opera and Houston Grand Opera, and premiered in 1996 in Houston, where the performance marked the first time a Spanish language opera was commissioned by a major opera house in the USA. It has since been performed by various opera houses including Madison Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Opera, Michigan State University Opera Theatre, Theater Heidelber, Cincinnati Opera, Moores Opera Center, Maryland Opera Studio, Opera Colorado, Krannert Center and is now being presented by Utah Opera. Since the opera’s first ever staging, Florencia en el Amazonas tickets have been quite a favorite among the romantics who enjoy the delicately intertwined tale of dreams, fantasy and reality coming together to form one whole.

It was founded by the late Glade Peterson who is was considered to be one among the most refined dramatic and vocal skills of Utah, and became its first general director. Under his leadership, as many as five performances were made for each opera, which is an extraordinary number compared to many regional companies that put up three shows at most. By 1997, the company has grown from playing four productions each season, and merged with Utah Symphony in 2002.
