Event Details

 Cuatro Corridos cover image

 "...an intensely disturbing operatic investigation into sex trafficking"
Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times Music Critic


Cuatro Corridos is a chamber opera that addresses one of the most critical human rights issues of our time: human trafficking.

 

Based on true events, Cuatro Corridos tells the story of four women trapped in a cycle of prostitution and slavery in and around the San Diego/Tijuana border region.

Los Angeles is a major hub for human trafficking and this benefit performance will help support LAFLA's services to victims of human trafficking who are brought to the U.S. and forced to work in the sex trade, farm fields, sweatshops, and even private homes as modern-day slaves.


Led by Grammy Award-winning soprano Susan Narucki and noted Mexican author Jorge Volpi, this chamber opera represents an unprecedented collaboration of internationally acclaimed creative composers, musicians and writers. The fully-staged production features original music by four young distinguished composers, each of whom gives voice to one of the four female characters by presenting one act in the hour-long drama.

Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles

The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), the frontline law firm for the poor in Los Angeles County and the largest law firm for the poor in California, was established in 1929 to ensure that the indigent have access to the civil justice system. LAFLA seeks to provide access to justice for poor and low-income people in greater Los Angeles who face systemic barriers to equal justice, equal opportunity and, too often, basic human rights. We change lives through direct representation, systems change and community education.

LAFLA is the first place thousands of poor people turn to when they need legal assistance with a crisis that endangers their children, homes, safety and well-being. LAFLA’s holistic legal and case management services help the most vulnerable — including children growing up in poverty, victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities, the indigent elderly, victims of torture and human trafficking, homeless and at-risk veterans and their families — secure fundamental services, health care, decent and affordable housing, employment and consumer protections, and freedom from exploitation and abuse.

In 2013, LAFLA’s attorneys, paralegals, social workers, support staff and many dedicated volunteers served over 75,000 poor and low-income people by providing legal assistance and case management services in over 12,000 client matters benefiting 31,080 people (including more than 13,000 children in client households) and also provided important legal information and education to 45,717 self-represented litigants, held clinics and workshops attended by 3,624 people, and gave referrals to 22,394 people, providing access to justice and changing lives.
