CUATRO CORRIDOS EARNS RAVE REVIEWS FROM LOS ANGELES TIMES AND UT SAN DIEGO
Cuatro Corridos, the new chamber opera created by Susan Narucki, Jorge Volpi and Pablo Gómez earned rave reviews on opening night from music critics Mark Swed at the Los Angeles Times and Jim Chute at UT San Diego. Swed praised Narucki's "commandingly theatrical" performance, while Chute wrote that "Narucki is able to communicate volumes with the most subtle gestures. And her voice is distinguished by its clarity, warmth, nuance, and presence."
Cuatro Corridos was also featured on KPBS-FM this week, when Narucki and Mexican composer Hilda Paredes appeared on the "Midday Edition" program. You can listen to the segment on KPBS's webpage.
Cuatro Corridos addresses the critical human rights issue of human trafficking. The opera, which runs May 8, 10, and 11 at 7 pm at UC San Diego's Conrad Prebys Music Center, features music by Paredes, Arlene Sierra, Hebert Vázquez Sandrin and UCSD's Lei Liang. Musicians are Aleck Karis (piano), Steven Schick (percussion), and Gomez (guitar).
Tickets are still available for the May 10 and May 11 performances. Call the Box Office (858-534-3448) or purchase tickets online.
