Fort Worth Opera: “Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World”
Enjoy a performance by the Fort Worth Opera of “Frida Kahlo and he Bravest Girl in the World.”
Synopsis: Marianna, a young girl living in the heart of Mexico City, lives in a home full of beautiful artwork by Frida Kahlo. She is encouraged by her family to visit Kahlo and have her portrait painted the renowned artist but is terrified at the thought. There are rumors that Frida keeps skeletons above her bed and exotic pets in her Blue House – people have even said that she is a witch. As Kahlo begins to paint Marianna in her studio, this fear quickly disappears, and a friendship blooms between the two. Marianna meets Frida’s husband, Diego Rivera, and learns of the horrible accident that almost killed her new friend. Through the magic of opera, Frida’s parrot, dog and monkey all sing, and the audience is invited to join in on the fun as well.
