    Andrew Garland, who sang Count Almaviva in Seattle Opera’s 2005 Young Artists Program MARRIAGE OF FIGARO, makes his mainstage debut as Schaunard in LA BOHÈME. But McCaw Hall has heard Garland once before—at a performance of Catán’s FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS in 2005, he sang the role of Riolobo when Nathan Gunn was indisposed. (Because the staging for Riolobo was extremely complicated, involving flying and dancing, it was a lip-sync vocal cover situation, with Gunn onstage and Garland in the orchestra pit.)

    In this recording from 2005, Garland sings Riolobo’s Act 2 invocation to the gods of the river, “Amazonas de este rìo.” “Amazons of this river, hear my song of gratitude: today you saved the world from destruction for the millionth time. Amazons, dark virgins! Drums! Make the world beat again. This river...serpentine of color over the land...dance!” The accompanist is David McDade, Head of Music for Seattle Opera.
