INTERNATIONAL NEW MUSIC COLLABORATION TO SHED LIGHT ON HUMAN SUFFERING
May 8, 10, 11 2013 @7PM at Conrady Prebys Music Center – Experimental Theater
University of California, San Diego
A chamber opera addressing human trafficking along the San Diego border to premiere at University of California, San Diego at the Conrad Prebys Music Center.
Based on true events, Cuatro Corridos tells the story of four women whose lives are scarred by human trafficking and represents an unprecedented collaboration between internationally acclaimed creative artists.
Led by Grammy Award winning soprano Susan Narucki and noted Mexican author Jorge Volpi, the fully- staged production features original music by four distinguished composers. Each gives voice to one of the four female characters by presenting one act in the hour-long drama.
Cuatro Corridos received generous support from UC MEXUS, the MAP Fund for the Performing Arts (Doris Duke Charitable Foundation), Yellow Barn Music Festival, and the Department of Music at UCSD.
