New Tres Vidas Trailer for 2020

Check out the new trailer for the Tres Vidas show – the first of our Virtual Library presentations to be made available to schools, community groups, colleges and universities. Book now for your fall semester!

Tres Vidas is a chamber music theatre work for singing actress and trio (cello, piano and percussion) based on the lives of three legendary Latin American Women: Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant activist Rufina Amaya and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni. Text is by Marjorie Agosin. The show features a wide stylistic range of music, including popular and folk songs of Mexico, El Salvador and Argentina, vocal and instrumental tangos by Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla and new music written especially for the Core Ensemble by Osvaldo Golijov and Manuel DeMurga.

The Core Ensemble is deeply grateful to the PNCBank Arts Alive Program for its recent donation! This funding will help us create a Virtual Library of our Music Theatre Pieces such as Tres Vidas, that Celebrate Diversity and Social Justice. Over the coming year, our Virtual Library will be made available to schools, community groups, colleges, and universities. A wonderful gift that arrived at just the right moment!
