(the lost one) is an emotional tale full of spirits and magic set in pre-revolutionary Mexico when all-powerful Dons ruled like kings. Inspired by Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale, Perdida
tells a story of passion, jealousy and redemption.
The Spirit of Time narrates a tale that takes place over a span of 18 years and also on a single night, el Dia de los Muertos
, the Day of the Dead, when the groundless jealousy of a powerful Don destroys a happy family. Only through the vision and courage of an abandoned child, Perdida, is all that was lost finally found again.

"The music was gorgeous and lush, almost operatic in scope but featuring traditional Spanish influences and syncopated rhythms." DCMetroTheaterArts
