Opera Orlando studio artists take the show on the road this season with a touring education and outreach production of this 40-minute children’s opera about Mariana, a young girl in Mexico who forms an unexpected friendship with the artist Frida Kahlo. While Frida paints her portrait, Mariana learns about friendship, belief in oneself, and overcoming her fears.


What a great field trip surprise for those home schooled students.
