Dreams Have No Borders weaves together film, music, and theatrical performance to bring to life a composite of stories shared by our local Latino community.

Through the storyline crafted by writer Tiziana DellaRovere and the music by composer Ethan Gans-Morse, it takes us into the harrowing world of Marisol, a young mother forced to flee her home in Mexico to save herself and her baby.

Featuring Alvaro Tellez and the Teokalli traditional Aztec Dancers

During the pandemic, this piece transformed into an operatic film by Emmy Award-winning director Jan Thompson with stage direction by Valerie Rachelle (Oregon Cabaret Theatre).

Follow Marisol’s journey to its heartwarming conclusion!

Soprano Estelí Gomez and Guitarist Colin Davin

Now streaming for FREE

Hot off her recent performances with the New York Philharmonic and concerts at the Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and beyond, Grammy-winning soprano Estelí Gomez joins us with her longtime collaborator, the award-winning classical guitarist Colin Davin, for a recital that exalts the power of the natural world.

During the height of the Covid Pandemic, we engaged Estelí and Colin to record a video recital of classical and contemporary songs that take us on a journey into the beauty and vulnerability of nature.

Estelí Gomez can be heard on the Seattle Symphony’s 2017 recording of Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3, on the first track of the Silkroad Ensemble’s Grammy-winning 2016 album Sing Me Home, and on Roomful of Teeth’s 2014 Grammy-winning self-titled album featuring Caroline Shaw’s Partita, the work for which the composer was awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize.

Classical guitarist Colin Davin has appeared as a featured musical guest on the final season of The Late Show with David Letterman alongside the late Jessye Norman. He has performed across the world, including at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, and the Paris Conservatoire.  He has “the distinct ability to wring the depths of expressiveness from all that he plays” (Classical Guitar Magazine).

Grammy-winner Estelí Gomez has been praised for her “clear, bright voice” (New York Times) and as “a soprano with a floating, angelic voice and a powerful presence” (I Care If You Listen). Her longtime collaborator, Colin Davin, has been hailed as “the real thing, a player with a virtuoso’s technique, a deeply expressive musicianship, and a probing imagination” (American Record Guide).
