Lives of Three Latin American Women Depicted

September 12th, 2003 by Adam

The lives of Frida Kahlo, Alfonsina Storni and Rufina Amaya come to life on stage at 8 p.m. Friday, September 26 when the Silver Series of Performing Arts presents Tres Vidas at Plymouth State University.

Tres Vidas is a musical theatre work starring Georgina Corbo with the Core Ensemble.
The musical score includes arrangements of popular and folk music from Latin America, music by tango master Astor Piazzola and new music by Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez, Osvaldo Golijov, Jorge Liderman, and Michael DeMurga.

The singing actress, performing in both Spanish and English, will portray the three heroines. The show includes images of Frida Kahlo’s dramatic visual work, excerpts from Alfonsina Storni’s passionate poetry, and passages from Rufina Amaya’s heartfelt testimony regarding the brutal massacre of her village of El Mozote.

Tres Vidas blends the culture, history, politics and art of Latin America into an engrossing evening of chamber theatre. Ticket holders are invited to a pre-performance discussion with the artists at 7 p.m.

Funding for Tres Vidas at Plymouth State University is provided in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts (NFA) as part of the NEA Regional Touring program. NEFA receives major support from the national Endowment for the Arts (NEA) with additional support from the state arts agencies of New England.
