Alamo City Opera’s 2019-’20 season includes Frida Kahlo piece
Alamo City Opera’s eighth season will include “Frida,” an opera based on the life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
It is one of two San Antonio premieres in the company’s 2019-’20 lineup. The other is “Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena.”
The season holds:
“Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena”: Composer Evan Mack’s piece weaves together Christmas carols with Mexican folk tunes to tell a holiday-themed coming-of-age story. Nov. 16-17, Buena Vista Theatre, UTSA downtown campus.
“Frida”: Composer Robert Xavier Rodriguez, who was born in San Antonio, wrote this piece about Kahlo, her work and her tempestuous marriage to Diego Rivera. Rodriguez’s music draws on mariachi and Mexican folk music. Feb. 8-9, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre.
“The Threepenny Opera”: The musical thriller by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht looks at the exploits of various unsavory sorts, including prostitutes, beggars and criminals. June 13-14, 2020, Buena Vista Theatre.
Season subscriptions range from $48 to $144. Visit alamocityopera.org for more information.
