Manaus – Teatro Amazonas – Jorge Vismara – thank you.
“After spending a month on a boat documenting self sustained communities in the Amazon forest, I had one day off in Manaus before flying back to Los Angeles…
Asked around and the building of the Teatro Amazonas was at the top of the list and not far from my hotel… walking distance.
To walk inside this 100+ years old majestic building after days and days of harsh living in the rainforest was like a trip to Europe in a few steps.
The delicacy of the pieces making part of the decoration, the incredible ancient wooden floors (that you cannot walk with your shoes on)… it was magic… and then looking at the stage from the audience seats… I felt that I was able to hear the Operas and orchestras of decades and decades of performances playing just for me…
Going out stopped to have a coffee at the little coffee place on the side, to stay a bit longer in *Europe*…” – Jorge Vismara
