A telenovela set to music
The life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is the stuff of legend. Wracked by agonizing physical pain and caught up in a stormy marriage to famed muralist, Diego Rivera, the flame that fuelded Kahlo’s art kept burning bright. She painted fifty-five self-portraits, but no portrait is more revealing that the one in this opera. Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s colorful music is a pitch perfect match for the woman, her art and her passionate life with its fusion of opera, Mariachi-style orchestration, Mexican folkloric music, Broadway and musical theater. Critics and audiences across America and throughout Europe have fallen in love with Frida...and you will too!
Sung in English and Spanish with bilingual supertitles.
