El Circo Anahuac
Monday, August 12
A workshop presentation of a new Aztec opera
Presented with Brown Fist Productions
Brown Fist Productions presents El Circo Anahuac, an Aztec Opera that tells the ancient tale of the twin volcanoes outside Mexico City, Popocaltepetl (Smoky Mountain) and Ixtlacihualt (The Sleeping Woman). El Circo blends the present with the fantastic, the real with the imagined, and the historic with the mythical. It will challenge the imagination of adult audiences while it fascinates and delights children. This multi-disciplinary production includes tri-lingual lyrics (Nahuatl, Spanish, English) and the words of historic Nahuatl poets.
