Florencia en el Amazonas / Seattle Opera

Feb 2005

The male cast was outstanding. Nathan Gunn was brilliant in every respect as Riolobo, the mystical character who summons local Amazonian spirits to avoid disaster at the end of Act I. His singing was beautiful, strong and well‑defined; like an athletic Ariel, Gunn's Riolobo guided us into the heart of darkness and light, asking in his opening aria whether Florencia is fantasy or illusion."
