Fort Worth Opera Company Performs at DHES



Members of the Fort Worth Opera presented Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World to the students of Dolores Huerta Elementary School on January 30.

The music was composed by Joe Illick and the text by Mark Campbell. The story was adapted from a book by the same name by Laurence Anholt.

The story is about a young girl named Mariana who is going to have her picture painted by Frida Kahlo. The girl is afraid of the painter and her pets. However, Mariana's fear is replaced with bravery when she leaves with a beautiful painting, and a new friendship with Frida Kahlo.

The Fort Worth Opera company commissioned this work to present to students in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. The work premiered on November 16, 2019.
