En Mis Palabras
Music by Roger Ames • Libretto by Jeffrey Gilden
A bilingual (Spanish and English) opera, En Mis Palabras is an opera that every student, no matter his or her cultural background, can relate to. Ana Maria struggles with the adolescent dilemma of finding her own voice and figuring out who she is, while her father struggles with the adult dilemma of knowing when and how much to let go so that this young adult may safely develop that sense of self. En Mis Palabras features four singers, guitarist and pianist.
