"Robert Xavier Rodríguez’s colorful score is a perfect match for the passionate art of the legendary painter Frida Kahlo. Although the artist was wracked by agonizing physical pain and caught up in a stormy marriage to Diego Rivera, the flame that fueled Kahlo’s art just kept burning and never turned to ash. She created fifty-five self-portraits. But no portrait of her is quite as revealing as the one in Rodríguez’s opera."

“The servants turn the tables on the masters in Mozart’s biting and sexually charged comedy about the established social order being tossed on its head. Today, The Marriage of Figaro rocks with the same revolutionary spirit that made it such a popular success at its 1786 premiere. Experience an intoxicating take on one of the great ensemble comedies in all of opera, with its endless supply of unforgettable melodies.”
