The art and life of artist Frida Kahlo is the stuff of legend. Robert Xavier Rodriguez’ music is the perfect match for the woman, her passion and legacy, with its mesmerizing fusion of opera, Mexican folkloric and mariachi music and Broadway musical theatre.
After our tremendously popular opening run of #Curbside Opera during the pandemic, #CurbsideOpera is here to stay! Joined by our First Fridays monthly performances, together these programs offer numerous options for free programming throughout the El Paso community.
El Paso Opera has committed itself to infusing the community with art while also reaching our Spanish speaking citizens. We are proud of our history as the first opera company in the country to offer Spanish and English supertitles!
Your potential funding is integral to supporting our shows, our Education Program and our Community Engagement programs. Our past three seasons have focused heavily on accessibility. We want everyone to enjoy El Paso Opera regardless of cost or circumstance. This is the driving idea behind both our First Fridays and our #CurbsideOpera programs. We have done our best to weather the difficulties of the pandemic, but we know there are going to be long lasting effects. Therefore, your support of our programming is needed this season more than ever!
Thank you in advance for your consideration of El Paso Opera. We are determined to do our part to help our community heal from the emotional toll of the pandemic through the power of music and the arts. It is only through community support that El Paso Opera will continue to contribute to the quality of life of our wonderful city.
El Paso Opera spent the summer spreading some cheer throughout the greater El Paso community with our #CurbsideOpera performances. Check out some of the footage below!
