Stephanie stars in new opera workshop
Juana is a workshop production of the recently completed libretto by Carla Lucero and Alicia Gaspar de Alba.
Based on the life of Mexico’s (in)famous poet, proto-feminist and philosopher, 17th Century lesbian nun Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Juana is a lyrical and tragic opera on the destruction of a genius at the hands of the Spanish inquisition.
The libretto includes Sor Juana’s original romantic love poetry written to another woman. This reading is a great opportunity to hear the text in English before its translated into Spanish and is set to music.
Juana stars Stephanie Rhoads and Adelina Anthony and is performing for one afternoon only as follows:
Sunday, June 19, 2 p.m.
Tickets $10, $5-students, seniors, or disabled.
