Tres Vidas

The Spanish Department will host the Core Ensemble, a chamber music theatre trio, who will present Tres Vidas to our middle school students on December 8.

Tres Vidas is based on the lives of three legendary Latin American Women: Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant activist Rufina Amaya, and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni. 

The show features a wide stylistic range of music, including popular and folk songs of Mexico, El Salvador, and Argentina; vocal and instrumental tangos by Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla; and new music written especially for the group by Osvaldo Golijov, Orlando Garcia, Pablo Ortiz, and Manuel DeMurga.

We look forward to sharing this compelling presentation of history, music, and culture with our students!
