Fifth House Ensemble presents Luna de Cuernos
Join us before the performance to hear members of Fifth House Ensemble play original compositions written by students at Humboldt Park's Lowell Elementary School during our composition residency.
Luna de Cuernos is a modern interpretation of a Puerto Rican folktale inspired by the true stories of Chicagoans:
Danger lurks in the garden…
Doña Yuiza’s garden is the pride and joy of the neighborhood. When mysterious destructive forces threaten her carefully tended yard one night, the entire community must pull together to protect it. Luna de Cuernos, a modern interpretation of a Puerto Rican folktale, is a story of a tight-knit group of friends and family under threat, and the risks they will take to defend all that they own.
