The Symphony Hall hosts this lyrical work from Latin America on 22, 24, and 26 March 2022
The Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council and managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga, puts tickets on sale for the opera "Florencia in the Amazon", by Daniel Catán. This Spanish première is a proposal of Opera de Tenerife to host lyrical work from Latin America. On 22, 24, and 26 March, the Symphony Hall will host this love trip.
Created by the Mexican composer Daniel Catán, and a libretto by Marcela Fuentes-Berain, this opera was premièred in 1996. It is a story about different ways of experiencing love during a boat trip in the Amazon. After an extensive tour around opera houses in America and two appearances in Europe (Germany and Switzerland), this opera that contains some elements of magical realism inspired by Gabriel García Márquez is staged in Spain for the first time.
Pedro Halffter, the musical director, will also be at the helm of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife to conduct this production of the Auditorio de Tenerife. With Chía Patiño as a stage director, the team is completed with Izmir Ickbal as set designer, Felype de Lima as a costume designer and Erin Fleming as a lighting designer. Alejandra Prieto is in charge of the design and direction of the puppets.
Regarding the cast, the soprano Sandra López will play Florencia Grimaldi; the soprano Lina Mendes will play Rosalba; the tenor Airam Hernández will play Arcadio; the baritones José Julian Frontal and Àngel Òdena will respectively play Álvaro and Riolbo; the mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala will play Paula, and the bass Alejandro López will be the boat captain.
