2018 SOLUNA Festival: Mariachi Wagner
Mexican artist Gonzalo Lebrija will mash mariachi with Wagner. Lebrija’s visual art will provide the setting for “Mariachi Wagner” with a performance by Mariachi Rosas Divinas, Dallas’s only professional all-female mariachi. Mexican composer Jesús Echevarría has created original music using Wagner as an inspiration in this world premiere of the SOLUNA-commissioned work.
Wagner continues to permeate the second week with the composer’s great-great grandson appearing at Alamo Drafthouse Cedars. On Wednesday, May 16 beginning at 6:30 PM, SOLUNA will screen Wagner: A Genius in Exile, a film about the composer’s time spent in Switzerland. The filmmaker and artist Antoine Wagner will be on hand for a discussion after the film.
