The life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo has become legendary: Wracked by agonizing pain and caught up in a stormy marriage to Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo was engulfed in agony that fueled her paintings. She created 55 self-portraits, but no portrait of her is quite as revealing as the one in this opera. Critics and audiences across America and throughout Europe have fallen in love with the opera Frida. Through its fusion of opera, Broadway, musical theater, jazz, and Mexican folkloric music, it paints a portrait of Mexico's greatest artist, her tragic life, and her tragic love story.
Sung in English and Spanish, with projected translations in English and Spanish.
