Alturas Duo joins Opera Nova for "Monkey See, Monkey Do"

Opera Nova | (703) 536- 7557

Gunston Middle School

2700 South Lang St  Arlington, VA


Alturas Duo joins Opera Nova in Arlington, VA for a week of in-school performances of Monkey See, Monkey Do, the delightful 35 minute, six character chamber opera for children based on a traditional Mexican folk tale, and culminating in a public performance on Saturday morning. 


Written by Roberto Xavier Rodríguez, Monkey See, Monkey Do is presented in both Spanish and English. This “captivating and energetic work”* was created for family audiences and weaves Mexican folk melodies into Rodríguez’s own musical texture, among them a variation of the popular "Chapanecas" (Mexican Clapping Dance) and two strains from the celebrated "El Jarabe Tapatio" (Mexican Hat Dance). Audiences of all ages will be eagerly rooting for the underdog to become the hero!

The concepts of Thanksgiving, The Dove, The Dew, Mary, Weeping and Remembrance are portrayed in Hispanic works of two different eras and styles. Featured are motets for four to six voices by Tomas Luis de Victoria, Francisco Guerrero and Antonio Lobo—some of the most remarkable composers of 16th century Spanish polyphony. Works include Victoria’s Te Deum, Guerrero’s Maria Magdalena, and Lobos' Versa est in luctum, among others. In contrast, choral and instrumental arrangements of Latin American folk melodies of the 20th and 21st centuries by Carlos Guastavino (Argentina), Violeta Parra and Victor Jara (Chile), and others are celebrated as Canto Nuevo (The New Song). Some of the most famous are Parra’s Gracias a la vida, and Guastavino’s Se equivocó la paloma. The poetry of these newer works includes texts by Nobel Prize winner Gabriela Mistral and Rafael Alberti, one of the greatest literary figures of the Silver Age of Spanish literature.
