Los Valientes

Tuesday, October 9, 2012     |     7 pm, Kresge Theater, College of Fine Arts

Los Valientes (The Courageous Ones) is a live music theatre work for singing actor and onstage music trio of cello, piano and percussion. Based on the lives of three heroic Latinos, the show celebrates Mexican painter Diego Rivera, martyred Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, and Mexican-American outlaw Joaquin Murrieta - some say the Zorro character was based on this historical figure. The music ranges from traditional Latino folk and popular songs sung in Spanish to instrumental works by Latin American composers.
