Xochitl and The Flowers

January 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST

Boulder Opera presents the free public performance and workshop of the children’s opera Xochitl and the Flowers.

Xochitl and the Flowers (pronounced “soh-chee”) is a bilingual opera sung in both English and Spanish by Santa Cruz based composer Chris Pratorium Gómez. Based on real-life events in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood, this quintessentially American immigration story tells the moving tale of a family’s determination to put down roots in a new country, while still preserving the heritage of their homeland. The opera is based on Jorge Argueta’s children’s book Xochitl and the Flowers. The music is influenced by Latin American styles and will include traditional percussion instruments and rhythms.

Workshop and performance lasts one hour 15 minutes. Recommended for kids ages 4 and up.
