THE MUSIC OF LA CASA AZUL will take the audiences on an inspirational journey of Frida Kahlo’s remarkable life.

“Orchestrally, the music is near perfection. Its thorough attentions to mood, setting and emotion are a strong feature of the work.” – Ken Klingenmeier, A SEAT ON THE AISLE 2019
“The show is sung through and is more an operetta than a traditional musical. Glade’s score, with additional lyrics by Kate Ayres, is enhanced by the exquisite orchestrations of Nicholas Cline. At times sweeping and grand, I heard elements of Corrido, Ranchera, Mariachi and classical music in the lush score. It also has a Sondheim quality reminiscent of “Sunday in the Park with George,” making it poignant and mesmerizing. A truly sensational masterpiece.” – Tom Alvarez, ON THE AISLE 2019
“Gregory Glade and his crew have put together a remarkable work. It is full of emotions and beauty, it is moving and forceful, it succeeds in its themes and its depictions and its production values. I hope this work can continue to grow and that its successes are boundless.” – Ken Klingenmeier, A SEAT ON THE AISLE 2019
THE MUSIC OF LA CASA AZUL concert is presented in partnership with the Consulate of Mexico in
Indianapolis.
Concert is sponsored by Diamond Glassworks, Indianapolis.
