Frida is a vibrant celebration of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century—brought to life by the beautiful music of Mexican American composer Robert Xavier Rodríguez. In this poetic opera, we follow moments from Frida Kahlo’s life – the traffic accident that changes her physical abilities, her turbulent relationship with Diego Rivera, the men and women that she loves, and the iconic art she creates as she changes the world.
This production was made possible by Carol Franc Buck Foundation, Jordan Schnitzer & The Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), TriMet, and Orox Leather Co.
