Fort Worth Opera will present the world premiere of El Ultimo Sueño de Frida y Diego (The Last Dream of Frida and Diego), a Spanish language opera exploring the passionate relationship of iconic Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz and Latin Grammy winner, pianist, and classical composer Gabriela Lena Frank, this celebratory new work is set in 1957 during the Mexican holiday of El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

The first full libretto reading of the opera was held on August 24, 2017, at Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, and this fall, co-commissioner San Diego Opera will conduct a piano-vocal workshop to further develop the piece. In May of 2019, following FWOpera’s spring Festival, the company will hold a weeklong orchestral-vocal workshop, culminating in two showcases of scenes from the opera for the entire community to enjoy. Audiences will receive an exclusive sneak peek of this exhilarating new work.

The May 30 performance will be at Rose Marine Theater, while the May 31 performance will be at Ed Landreth Hall on the TCU campus.
