Ravel Opera performed in Patzcuaro

The lyrical fantasy of Maurice Ravel, libretto by Colette, was recently performed in Pátzcuaro at the Teatro Emperador Caltzontzin on Plaza Gertrudis Bocanegra aka Plaza Chica.
The work tells the story of an unruly small boy. He must face the consequences of thoughtless and mean actions. Familiar objects and creatures that he has tormented come to life for an afternoon in a fantasy intended to teach him a lesson of respect for his environment and for nature. The lesson ends happily.
Desorden Arte A.C. coached children from the Casa Hogar para Niños Necesitados (home for needy children) in Morelia for the performance. It was surely an expanding and confidence-building experience for these niños.The classical musicians and singers for the opera were from the renowned Conservatorio de las Rosas in Morelia.
Once again, Patzcuarenses attended a quality production free of charge.
