Florida Grand Opera
Concerts & Performances
Frida is the story of renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, wife of the great muralist Diego Rivera. Her tortured life unfolds in a flowing succession of scenes, acted and sung by six women and five men in a variety of guises, masked, plain-faced, and as two-or three-dimensional puppets; shadow puppets and projections are involved. Diego's preoccupation with art and other women shrivel Frida's soul. Her health deteriorates; only painting permits emotional release, translating her agonies into a series of canvases. Her fate is to live alone, engulfed by pain, but her paintings live forever. This opera contains adult content, including suggestive themes, graphic scenes, and partial nudity. Florida Grand Opera performances are Sat at 7:30 and Sun at 3 p.m. Tickets range from $35 - $99.
