Updated: Nov 5, 2019

Frida Kahlo and the Bravest Girl in the World is the third opera I’ve written with a story that involves a visual artist, but the first children’s opera that focuses on one,” says Mark Campbell. “The narrative angle Laurence Anholt cleverly provided in his eponymous book—through Mariana Morillo Safa, a young girl who was the subject of one of Kahlo’s most famous portraits—allowed Joe and me to not only explore the workings of an artist at her height, but also the power of sororal friendships." - Mark Campbell.
