Opera America highlight's Patiño's work in article on "Cross-Cultural Hybrids"


“Chía Patiño… devised a production that emphasized the similarities between Andean and Masonic symbolism…The production drew a significant contingent from Ecuador’s Indian communities, many of them who had never before attended an opera…The Andes Magic Flute follows in the tradition …of a similar impulse to create cultural connections and expand audiences.” - Opera America
