Know Before You Go: Florencia in the Amazon
DATE & TIME
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
The Opera Center
Described as “a ravishing melodic score that swells with echoes of Puccini, Ravel, Strauss, Stravinsky and Debussy,” Florencia in the Amazon has been seen on stages across the United States and abroad. Wondering what to expect? Want to get a sneak peek at our upcoming production? Join us at the Opera Center for a behind-the-scenes look at the music, the cast, and the visual elements of this exciting Pensacola Opera premiere.
We will also be joined by Elizabeth Caballero (Florencia) and Luis Alejandro Orozco (Ríolobo). These two cast members have both performed in multiple productions of Florencia and are excited to share their expertise.
Conductor and Education Director Cody Martin leads this discussion, which will also feature our Artists in Residence performing excerpts from the score. Complimentary wine will be provided.
