We're working with community partners to plan Frida as an outdoor production this summer. Check back soon for tickets and more information, or sign up for Portland Opera emails and news alerts.
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 two poetic acts, 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.
Learn more about Mexican American composer Robert Xavier Rodríguez, award-winning playwright Migdalia Cruz, and Hilary Blecher, who wrote the book.
A few of the many reasons we are excited to share this amazing production with you.
Learn about other community events coming up soon.
We're working on a plan to present Frida as a safe outdoor production, with the option to view it digitally as well. Digital access would be made available for a limited time on Portland Opera Onscreen.
Additional ticket information will be shared soon, as we continue to develop guidance with our team of medical experts and local health authorities.
