Space still available for “Tienda” – Don’t Miss this

submitted by knutsonc@augsburg.edu

There are still tickets available for “Tienda” – Especially on Saturday!!

Tickets are required and can be reserved following the link below
> $20 Immersive Seating (includes small samples of Mexican food & drink)
> FREE Balcony Seating

ABOUT “TIENDA”
The opera tells the story of Luis Garzón, a Mexican musician who immigrated to Minneapolis in 1886 and opened a small Mexican grocery store, or tienda, in St. Paul in the 1920s. While Luis had married an American woman and was fully integrated into Minnesotan society, his store served as a community hub for the newest arrivals from Mexico, many of whom had fled the Mexican Revolution and now toiled on the sugar beet farms of rural Minnesota. “Tienda” explores the immigrant experience: what must be left behind—and what cannot be forgotten—on the journey to a new home.

The opera is composed by Augsburg Music faculty member Reinaldo Moya and will also include the Augsburg Orchestra & The Augsburg Choir.
