Florencia en el Amazonas

Uploaded by ehughes
Get ready for a romantic musical adventure when the Pittsburgh Opera presents Florencia en al Amazonas. Inspired by the magical realism Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel García Márquez, the early 1900s story follows legendary opera diva Florencia Grimaldi as she travels down the Amazon River on the steamboat El Dorado en route to a concert. Along the way, Florencia and the other passengers nearly perish in a strong storm, until they’re saved by the shape-shifting spirit, Riolobo. The journey then turns mystical as Florencia pines for a lost love and passengers develop intense romantic feelings for one another.
