Perdida

Book/lyrics by Kathleen Cahill, Music by Deborah Wicks Lapuma

Summary

Running time: 90min | Actors: (10)

An emotional tale full of spirits and magic set in pre-revolutionary Mexico when all-powerful dons ruled like kings. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, Perdida tells a story of passion, jealousy and redemption.

A fantastic update of an ancient story. …The music was gorgeous and lush, almost operatic in scope but featuring traditional Spanish influences and syncopated rhythms.
