If you haven’t experienced live theater outdoors, here’s your chance: The Central City Opera and Central Park MCA will present three performances of En Mis Palabras/In My Own Words and Arias & Ensembles as part of its Outdoor Theatre on The Green series. For us, it doesn’t get much better than an evening under the stars enjoying the arts with friends and family.
The show takes place from Thursday to Saturday, August 12 to 14 — each night at 6:30 p.m.
An original one-act bilingual opera (English/Spanish), En Mis Palabras/In My Own Words, addresses the universal theme of adolescent development — finding your own voice and learning who you are amid parental expectations and peer influences.
Fifteen-year-old Ana Maria feels stifled by her strict father; he is bewildered by her wish to be herself. Wise Abuela and brother Rodolfo try to help, but it takes a family crisis to bring father and daughter to the beginning of acceptance and understanding.
Performances will be held on North Green at 49th & Valentina. in Denver. All shows are FREE and open to the public.
