Opening-Night Party, a sultry soiree in celebration of the U.S. premiere of Tropicalia: A Revolution in Brazillian Culture. Savor hors d'oeuvres by Wolfgang Puck, sip specialty drinks from a cash bar, yadda yadda.
In conjunction with the exhibition Tropicália: A Revolution in Brazilian Culture (October 22, 2005 ? January 8, 2006), the MCA presents an exciting series of concerts, performances, and film screenings. The Tropicália movement was brief but lasting, transforming Brazilian culture and inspiring generations of artists, performers, and musicians. In addition to the World Music Festival performances of Orquestra Imperial with Seu Jorge, and Dominico +2 with On Fillmore (see World Music Festival above); and the Chicago Human Rhythm Project with Vatá Tap (see Chicago Human Rhythm Project below), the MCA presents several other Brazilian performances.
