Based on true events, Cuatro Corridos tells the story of four women whose lives are scarred by human trafficking  and represents an unprecedented collaboration between internationally acclaimed creative artists.

Led by Grammy Award winning soprano Susan Narucki and noted Mexican author Jorge Volpi, the fully-staged production features original music by composers Hilda Paredes, Arlene Sierra, Lei Liang and Hebert Vázquez. Each composer gives voice to one of the four female characters by presenting one act in the hour-long drama.

Three of the most distinguished performers of new music, percussionist Ayano Kataoka, pianist Aleck Karis, and guitarist Pablo Gomez, accompany Narucki in sharing the compelling stories of four women whose lives are scarred by human trafficking. The production team includes artist-activist Karen Guancione, lighting designer Kristin Hayes, costume designer Halei Parker and graphics animators Cameron Bailey and Sam Doshier. Jason Ponce serves as technical director for the project.

Cuatro Corridos received generous support from UC MEXUS, the MAP Fund for the Performing Arts (Doris Duke Charitable Foundation), Yellow Barn Music Festival, and the Department of Music at UCSD.
