Cuatro Corridos Opera Addresses Sex Trafficking Along the Border

Cuatro Corridos is a chamber opera addressing one the critical human rights issues of 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.

The opera is coming to Dallas on October 4th ,8pm, at the Nasher Sculpture Center.

Led by Grammy Award winning soprano Susan Narucki and noted Mexican author Jorge Volpi, the fully-staged production features original music by composers Hilda Paredes, Arlene Sierra, Lei Liang and Hebert Vázquez. Each composer gives voice to one of the four female characters by presenting one act in the hour-long drama.  

"Music has the power to establish contact between people — real, intimate contact that can cause us to question, to see things differently, to move us to action and to negate fear."
- Susan Narucki

After the performance, a brief post-concert discussion will be held about human trafficking with a panel of experts to answer questions.  Here are some reviews of  Cuatro Corridos from the LA Times other sources.

I am planning attend and I hope you will join me for the event.
