Frida at the National Hispanic Cultural Center Journal Theatre
February 13, 2pm; Feb 16, 7:30pm; Feb 18, 7:30pm; Feb 20, 2pm, 2022
Frida is a lively celebration of one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century. The music of composer Robert Xavier Rodríguez bridges the gap between opera and music theatre, drawing inspiration from Gershwin, Sondheim and Kurt Weill.
Frida Kahlo painted 55 self portraits, each one offering us a revealing look at the artist at a single point in her life. Similarly, the opera is episodic, and captures the most poignant moments from her life, from the traffic accident at 18 that forever altered the course of her life, to her political development, and her turbulent relationship with Diego Rivera and her sister Cristina.
Starring soprano Eliza Bonet in the title role, Frida will be presented in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Maestro Zoe Zeniodi conducts.
Pelleas et Melisande at the National Hispanic Cultural Center Journal Theatre
March 20, 2pm; Mar 25, 7:30pm, Mar 27, 2pm, 2022
An opera that is on the surface about the forbidden, doomed love of the title characters. Sensuous and dreamlike, Claude Debussy’s only completed opera focuses on the symbolic contrasts of light/vision/love and darkness/blindness/tragedy.
The dramatic power of Pelléas arises from the diaphanous textures of Debussy’s music – the opera emerges from a hushed silence and descends back into a quiet denouement.
Starring Andrea Hill as Mélisande and John Viscardi as Pelléas. Maestro Anthony Barrese conducts.
