S. van der Stegen: Autour de Frida

A recital of singing, accordion, and guitar around the figure of Frida Kahlo, with extracts from her diary and letters, read by an actress.

Frida Kahlo’s world was bathed in music, as her diaries and correspondence show. This show offers an imaginary musical portrait of the icon, based on texts written by herself. From Manuel Ponce to Maria Grever, Consuelo Velasquez, and Chavela Vargas, not forgetting her favourite song: “Cielito Lindo”, from which she took the title of one of her paintings: ‘Tree of hope, stay strong”.

This recital is a working stage in the creation of “Frida: alas para volar”, an opera for families, to be premiered in December 2023.
