¡Hispania! (Chicago)
A Voyage from Spain to the Americas

March 24-25, 2023

A troupe of 17 international artists sets out on a vibrant musical journey from 16th-century Spain to baroque Latin America. In this new program designed by Jeannette Sorrell, the music of Spanish composers Diego Ortiz, Gaspar Sanz, and Santiago de Murcia blends virtuosity with lively dance rhythms. Crossing the Atlantic, we encounter Mexican and Peruvian influences. Sephardic ballads from the Jewish communities of Spain and Argentina ring with love and despair.

Apollo’s Fire is proud to present Puerto Rican soprano Sophia Burgos, now acclaimed across Europe, in this return to her native city of Chicago. She joins with flamenco guitarist Marija Temo and AF musicians on strings, plucked instruments, and percussion.
