Sun Valley Opera and Broadway presents Florencia en el Amazones, Met Opera’s Live Simulcast Opera December 9 at The Magic Lantern

Magic Lantern Cinemas 100 Second St, Ketchum

The next presentation by Sun Valley Opera and Broadway’s Live Simulcast Opera Performances is Florencia en el Amazones on Saturday, December 9, 2023. More information can be found at www.sunvalleyopera.com. Inspired by the magical realism of Gabriel García Márquez, Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas tells the enthralling story of an opera diva who returns to her native South America to search for her lost lover, who has vanished into the jungle. Ailyn Pérez stars as Florencia Grimaldi, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the podium to lead a spellbinding new production by Mary Zimmerman. Fluidity—of time, place, emotion, and even of identity—is at the core of Florencia en el Amazonas. It is ostensibly the tale of passengers traveling down the Amazon River aboard the steamship El Dorado; the real drama, though, lies in the psychological journeys that each character undertakes. The libretto, by Marcela Fuentes-Berain, is an original story rich in allusion to other tales that skirt the border between drama and fantasy. Fuentes-Berain was a student of Gabriel García Márquez, whose style of magical informs the plot. Doors open at 10:30am. The concession counter will be open. The production begins at 10:55am. The Magic Lantern is located at 100 East ...

The free workshops can be taken singly or together. Materials will be provided. Each workshop begins with a short loving kindness meditation followed by a lesson in folding Origami cranes. Participants will then be invited to take their new skills and Origami paper home and fold more cranes with family and friends.

Stand-Up Comedy Series Featuring: Keith Barany

Sun Valley Opera House 1 Sun Valley Rd, Sun Valley

Join us at the Sun Valley Opera House for five great nights of stand-up comedy. Each night will feature a different world-class entertainer. These comedians will keep it relatively clean, and generally stay away from politics, though it is always appropriate to warn families that there may be adult language and content. Keith Barany Keith Barany is a comedian and comedy producer for the Dry Bar Comedy Series that has shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Joan Rivers, Ray Romano, Jon Stewart, Lewis Black, and more. The New York Post coined Keith, “The wittiest comic working today”, and Keith has written for Seinfeld, Politically Incorrect, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the Emmy’s. Keith’s specialty is comedy that’s real, without being vulgar or “cringy”. PURCHASE TICKETS HERE
