DANIEL CATÁN
Florencia in the Amazon (1996)            
Libretto by Marcela Fuentes-Berain, inspired by the writings of Gabriel García Márquez
Company premiere
WNO co-production with LA Opera; originally staged by Houston Grand Opera and Cincinnati Opera
 
"Visually stunning! Gasp-inducing aerial effects… shimmering, romantic score… This is an opera that works."–The Seattle Times
 
Two-time Grammy Award–winning American soprano Christine Goerke stars as a famous opera singer who embarks upon an enchanted riverboat journey in late Mexican American composer Daniel Catán's mesmerizing opera. Returning after 20 years to her South American homeland of Brazil, Florencia Grimaldi boards the El Dorado in disguise and heads up the Amazon to sing at an opera house in the capital. Along the way, she hopes to track down her long-lost lover, a butterfly hunter who has disappeared in the jungle. Beset by storms and a cholera outbreak, Florencia and her fellow travelers are carried deeper into the rain forest, while Ríolobo, a mystical river creature, guides them to life-changing revelations.
 
Inspired by the magical realism of Nobel Prize–winning Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez (Love in the Time of Cholera), Florencia in the Amazon was the first-ever Spanish-language commission by major U.S. opera companies, and an instant audience smash when it premiered in 1996 under the direction of Francesca Zambello. WNO's Artistic Director now brings this fantastical opera to Washington, eager to revisit the production with fresh insight as part of her commitment to present a major American work each season. Last seen as Chrysothemis in WNO's Elektra in 2008, Christine Goerke brings her "big, gleaming sound" (The Chicago Tribune) to a dazzling score led by rising star conductor Carolyn Kuan in her WNO debut. As the Washington Post says: "Catán writes in a lush, post-Puccini melodic idiom, creating music that's well suited to a story that reaches toward mythic timelessness."

Vagabond Opera

May 10th, 2014

Vagabond Opera
Event on 2014-06-26 20:00:00

The six piece, Portland, OR based music ensemble Vagabond Opera is described by the Washington Post as a band of ceaseless charisma, boundless energy, impeccable musicianship and more than a little touch of both the naughty and exotic. Featuring four singers (two operatically trained) two cellos, saxophone, clarinet, accordion, double bass and drums, the Bohemian neo-cabaret gypsy rock ensemble plays a combination of cabaret, burlesque, tango, Balkan beats, Klezmer, rock, Arab music, Parisian hot jazz, and, yes, opera thatll leave your head spinning. The ensemble sings in 15 languages and mixes their genre-defying original tunes with covers made famous by such artists as Jacques Brel, Tom Waits, Raymond Scott, and Edith Piaf all performed with theatrics, flair and an old world mood.Vagabond Opera is at the vanguard of a growing popularity in the Neo-cabaret phenomenon, and through their theatrical performances and eclectic repertoire bring the eclectic artistic spirit of Portland, OR to the world. The May 2009 release of The Zeitgeist Beckons marks the third full-length release from the band to date. The ensemble recently premiered their first full length opera Queen of Knives in May 2010. Vagabond Opera has performed across the USA and in Europe, is played regularly on NPR and has shared stages and players with Pink Martini, Devotchka, The Decembrists, and the Oregon Symphony, proving their easy crossover appeal.

Gaetano Donizetti's
The Elixir of Love
(L'elisir d'amore)
Libretto by Felice Romani
WNO revival
 
In Donizetti's loveable comic opera, handsome peasant Nemorino has the misfortune to fall head over heels for fickle and feisty landowner Adina. Without money, he just can't compete with wealthy Sergeant Belcore, Adina's dashing yet pompous suitor.
 
Enter the elixir of love, peddled by an eccentric traveling quack, Doctor Dulcamara. Though it's only cheap table wine, Nemorino is convinced this "magical tonic" has now empowered him to win Adina's affections–even as her wedding to Sergeant Belcore leaps into full swing! Might his newfound confidence and uninhibited charm melt her heart after all?
 
One of the world's most frequently performed operas, The Elixir of Love is cherished for its whimsical wit and endearing characters, not to mention the many intoxicating duets and "Una furtiva lagrima," one of the most hauntingly beautiful of all tenor arias. Fresh from WNO's Anna Bolena last fall, renowned British director Stephen Lawless returns with his warm and inspired take on Donizetti's masterpiece, last seen by WNO audiences in 2006, but this time with a few new twists. The production also features an accomplished cast of new and familiar faces, along with young American conductor Ward Stare in his WNO debut.
