Nasher Sculpture Center will present Cuatro Corridos, a chamber opera addressing one of the most critical human rights issues of our time: human trafficking. Based on true events, it tells the story of women trapped in a cycle of prostitution and slavery in and around the San Diego/Tijuana border region.
Led by soprano Susan Narucki and librettist Jorge Volpi, this fully staged production features original music by composers Lei Liang, Hilda Paredes, Arlene Sierra and Hebert Vázquez. Each composer gives voice to one of the four female characters in the hour-long drama; an unprecedented collaboration between internationally acclaimed Mexican and US-based creative artists.
