Suffolk University's C. Walsh Theatre Brings the Sounds of Latin America to Boston Area

2/28/2001

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Suffolk University will present Tres Vidas (Three Lives), a new music theatre piece performed by the Core Ensemble, on Thursday, March 8, at 8 p.m. in the C. Walsh Theatre on the University’s Beacon Hill campus.

The Core Ensemble, a popular, multi-talented group, is comprised of actress Georgina Corbo, cellist Amy Barston, pianist Hugh Hinton and percussionist Michael Parola.

The script, developed by award-winning Chilean writer Marjorie Agosin, celebrates the lives of three powerful Latin American women -- Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant-activist Rufina Amaya and Argentine poet Alfonsina Storni.

The score features popular and folklore music from a variety of Latin cultures, including Tangos by Astor Piazolla and songs of Carlos Gardel. Also featured are new works by Latin American composers.

Suffolk University’s C. Walsh Theatre is located at 55 Temple Street. Tres Vidas is open to the public free of charge, but tickets are required. For tickets, reservations and further information, please call 617-573-8287.

Tres Vidas is sponsored by the Latin American Studies Program, the Department of Humanities and Modern Languages, and the Cultural Events Committee at Suffolk University.
