The Frog Bride
The Frog BrideWhen a King sends his three sons to find their brides, two return with fair ladies. The last returns with… A FROG?! The Frog Bride with David Gonzalez is a hip adaptation of a classic Russian tale told by consummate storyteller David Gonzalez. Two outstanding musicians weave one of Prokofiev’s classics with an original jazz-funk score, as David performs every role against a backdrop of stunning live video projection and moving images by painter Wassily Kandinsky. Filled with comic sparkle, The Frog Bride with David Gonzalez is a “ribbiting” coming-of-age story.

“Absorbing, funny and suspenseful, it is, in the great tradition of storytelling, enchanting.” – The New York Times
