Mariposa Que Vuela – an evening with Cecilia Violetta López
Opera Southwest is delighted to welcome celebrated soprano Cecilia Violetta López at the National Hispanic Cultural Center Journal Theatre.
Mariposa Que Vuela is a “recital autobiográfico” with soprano Cecilia Violetta López. Weaving together mariachi, ranchera, and opera music, Cecilia tells the story of her family, her early childhood in Idaho’s farm fields, the songs her mother taught her, and her exciting career in opera.
Celebrated soprano (and new Albuquerque resident) Cecilia Violetta López has been named one of “Idaho’s Top 10 Most Influential Women of the Century” by USA Today and has been named one of opera’s “25 Rising Stars” by Opera News. The singing actress is constantly praised for her “alluring voice and incredible range” (Washington Post).
