We are very excited to participate in the first collaboration between the Lexington Opera House and Kentucky Opera, which features an intense and brilliant musical score highlighting tango, Flamenco, and Klezmer styles in a multimedia program.

Studio Artist Melisa Bonetti will play the role of Lorca, a martyr in the name of artistic freedom, while Danielle Messina will be portraying his closest confidante, Margarita. Recent MainStage inductee Marco Cammorta will fill the role of the Maestro.
