Rare, Classic Melodrama

Forget Snidely Whiplash. Melodrama: Where Love and Destiny Collide combines piano music and text in a rare presentation of material from the Romantic era. Grammy-nominated pianist and Naxos recording artist Douglas Riva and renowned actor Patricio Tlacaelel Trujillo y Fuentes will present two pieces: “The Castle by the Sea” and “Enoch Arden.” Text for the first is by Ludwig Uhland, while the second is based on a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The music for each was composed by Richard Strauss. “I’ve always been interested in multimedia work, and I’m always searching for a way to use the piano in a very passionate and expressive means,” says Riva. Teamed up with Tlacaelel, who brings the requisite theatrical and musical credentials, Riva appears to have found just the vehicle he was looking for. The two will perform today at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) at 2 p.m.
