El Paso Opera presents this fusion of opera, Mexican folkloric and mariachi music, and Broadway musical theater. Performed in Spanish and English with projected translations in both languages, the show chronicles the iconic artist's life—from her teenage embrace of revolutionary politics to her early death—through music, monologue, dance, and visual spectacle. The opera showcases the major events of Frida’s life that infused her art, including her stormy love life with fellow artistic firebrand Diego Rivera. Witness some of her best-known paintings come to life as this celebration of one of the most-beloved artists of the 20th century unfolds.
