Based on the beloved coming-of-age novel The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, Derek Bermel’s Mango Suite re-tells the story of young protagonist Esperanza Cordero, featuring soprano Mikaela Bennett. Three stirring works by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla with special guest flamenco dancer Griset Damas Roche bring the PSO season to a thrilling conclusion.
