★★★★ “Worth a century’s wait…Vivid romanticism…Lyrical, colorful, with great vitality…An excellent Ailyn Pérez…er sound lustrous, full and elegant…The orchestra sounds fantastic…An involving production with lots of pleasures. It flows like a river and adds to the sense of renewal through contemporary works at the Met this fall. ” —Financial Times

“Magic made real Visually stunning and emotionally affecting…A perfect choice to bring Spanish-language opera into the mainstream…A riotous rainbow of color…aw-dropping costumes…a feast for the eyes.” —Observer

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Daniel Catán’s spellbinding masterpiece, only the third Spanish-language opera to be presented at the Met.

Inspired by the magical realism of novelist Gabriel García Márquez, with a libretto by Mexican writer Marcela Fuentes-Berain, Catán’s 1996 opera follows Florencia Grimaldi, a South American opera diva who returns to her homeland to perform at the legendary opera house of Manaus and to search for her lost lover, who has vanished into the jungle.

Rising soprano Ailyn Pérez stars as Florencia Grimaldi, leading a distinguished ensemble of artists who portray her fellow travelers: soprano Gabriella Reyes as the journalist Rosalba, bass-baritone Greer Grimsley as the ship’s captain, baritone Mattia Olivieri as his enigmatic first mate, tenor Mario Chang as the captain’s nephew Arcadio, and mezzo-soprano Nancy Fabiola Herrera and baritone Michael Chioldi as the feuding couple Paula and Álvaro.
