Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- “A wizard behind a curtain, without the curtain.” —<em>The New York Times </em>
- "Smart, funny, emotionally engaging, and flat-out beautiful—in short, everything you’d expect from an artist of Anderson’s stature and reputation." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.straight.com/article-292014/vancouver/delusion-everything-youd-expect-laurie-anderson">straight.com</a>
At the heart of this new multimedia work from brilliant storyteller Laurie Anderson is the pleasure of language. Conceived as a series of short mystery plays and inspired by the breadth of Balzac, Ozu, and Laurence Sterne, Delusion bridges the everyday and the mythic, evoking a world filled with nuns, elves, golems, rotting forests, ghost ships, archaeologists, dead relatives, and unmanned tankers.
Employing a series of altered voices and imaginary guests, Anderson combines her signature violin pieces, electronic puppetry, music, and visuals, with the poetic language that has become her trademark to tell a complex story about longing, memory, and identity. The work comes to Zellerbach Hall following its debut at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
