Ana y su Sombra

In partnership with Cincinnati Opera, ROKCincy presented Ana y su Sombra, written by Gabriela Ortiz. Ana y su Sombra is a Spanish/English opera about a homesick young girl and her precocious shadow, each trying to find their own identity in a strange place. We took this show to 3 local schools and ended with a free, public performance at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater in Price Hill.

Music Director: Stephen Variames

Ana/Yeya: Christina Kerstan

Sombra: Christina Bilz

Kevin Truax: Old Oak Tree/Pete/Asombra

Matthew Umphreys: Piano

Karen Lee: Violin

Nave Graham: Flute

ROKCincy would like to thank Melanie Chavez, Jeremy Campbell, and Cincinnati Opera for their support of this production.

We are so excited to announce our 2015-2016 tour of “The Wizard of Oz!”

Using the beloved and familiar story made famous by the 1939 film, we’ve added operatic classics to enhance the drama and retell the tale as only ROKCincy can. The performance is 40 minutes in length and includes a Q&A session with the cast. An interactive curriculum guide meeting state and national standards is provided to all schools that schedule a performance.

If you are interested in bringing “The Wizard of Oz!” to your school or community center, email Kelly at ROKCincy@gmail.com.
