The Magic Hummingbird – El Colibrí Mágico is a musical-opera about plant spirits, teenage rockers and refugees. This world premiere opera in the form of an old-fashioned radio drama (with live sound effects, voice actors, singers, musicians and narration) presents singers and musicians from the border towns of San Diego and Tijuana performing with New York based artists in this fantastical story of borders, refugees, vigilantes, surreal imagery and hope.
