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.

Wednesday, May 26-Friday, May 28, 8pm: The staged production of Pascal Dusapin’s chamber opera “To Be Sung,” in its West Coast Premiere.

This haunting work, with text by Gertrude Stein, is a kaleidoscope of colors and textures for both voices and instruments; by turns whimsical, dramatic and poignant. Since its 1993 premiere, To Be Sung has been presented more than fifty times throughout Europe.

The cast features singers from from UCSD’s graduate program, along with UCSD faculty member Philip Larson. Directed by Susan Narucki (one of the works’ original cast members), To Be Sung takes place in the Department’s new experimental theatre in the Conrad Prebys Music Center. Guest conductor Julian Pellicano leads members of the Department’s new music group Palimpsest.
