Cuatro Corridos: A Chamber Opera

Cuatro Corridos: A Chamber OperaCuatro Corridos is a one-hour chamber opera which addresses the critical issue of human trafficking. The opera features original music by four contemporary composers (Lei Liang, Arlene Sierra, Hilda Paredes and Hebert Vazquez) and the Grammy award winning soprano Susan Narucki is accompanied by guitar, piano and percussion. The event is a benefit for Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles.  

Cuatro Corridos is being presented  as a fundraising benefit for the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles.

Led by Grammy Award winning soprano Susan Narucki and Mexican author Jorge Volpi, Cuatro Corridos features Volpi’s libretto and original music by four noted composers Hilda Paredes, Arlene Sierra, Lei Liang and Hebert Vázquez. Three distinguished performers of new music, percussionist Ayano Kataoka, pianist Aleck Karis, and guitarist Pablo Gomez, accompany Narucki in sharing the compelling stories of the four central characters whose lives are scarred by human trafficking.

Cuatro Corridos had its premier to critical acclaim at the Conrad Prebys Music Center at UCSD in May, 2013, with subsequent performances in Tijuana, Dallas, and Albuquerque. Cuatro Corridos has been the recipient of support from the MAP Fund for the Performing Arts/Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, UC MEXUS, and most recently, by the National Endowment for the Arts to support an East coast tour to Boston, New York and Washington, DC.
