See C.S.O. Proof: Surrealist El Tropical at Music Hall on March 29 and 30.


In Surrealist El Tropical, choreographer Rosie Herrera wants to set the scene. After a night of gleefully overindulging in absinthe cocktails, filmmaker Federico Fellini stumbles down an alley in old Havana.

A door cracks open, and music washes over him like a sticky sunrise in September. He enters a primordial soup of neon, sound, and tropical heat. A wild undercurrent pulses through the room, whispering that anything (and everything) might happen.

C.S.O. Proof performances are supported by The Haile Foundation, Irwin & Melinda Simon, and the American Orchestras’ Futures Fund, a League of American Orchestras program made possible by funding from the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.
