Vanessa Alonzo

In celebration of Dia de los Muertos, Austin Opera and the Consulate General of Mexico in Austin are delighted to feature a Mariachi concert by mezzo-soprano Vanessa Alonzo and Trio Chapultepec and the launch of Mariana Nuño’s new book, Dining with the Dead. Attendees also had the opportunity to view the Consulate’s ofrenda in honor of the late Mexican composer Armando Manzanero and a display of Tzompantli by local artists with an introduction and explanation of the tradition by Claudia Montero.

The one-hour program was presented at the Mexican Consulate in Austin to a limited number of in-person attendees.

Like all programs in the Concerts at the Consulate series, this recital was recorded live and made available to watch on-demand on our digital channel, Live from Indy Terrace (LIT) with subtitles in both English and Spanish.
