Hi Listeros,

Just wanted to share my review of Xochicuicatl Cuecuechtli billed as the
first contmeporary Nahuatl opera. I was lucky enough to attend the premiere
this saturday. Its libretto is based on one of the Cantares Mexicanos. The
music was really good, but I was a little dismayed by how little the role
of the language actually was in the performance. I would still recommend
anyone interested in Nahuatl to see it if they have the chance.

Here is a link to my review:
