Her unconventional shows – with syncretic style and eclectic taste – combine ranchera, bolero, rumba, rock and jazz, a unique musical form that has been dubbed 'Heavy Nopal' (after the quintessentially Mexican cactus whose juice is distilled to make Tequila).<br /> Drawing on elements and traditions of Mexican and Latin-American popular culture, Hadad creates unconventional and baroque visual proposals that highlight complex social and political realities in an entertaining and accessible manner - so much so that entire families, from grandparents to their grandchildren, are a fixture in the audience of Hadad's many public performances in Mexico. A cultural icon in Mexico, she has performed at numerous universities, art centers and museums throught the country festivals including Cervantino and Cumbre Tajin and before an audience of a million people in Mexico City's Zocalo.

It combines music, movement, theatrics and visual artistry, making it the perfect fit for any classroom. By engaging students in new ways, opera encourages critical thinking, communication, creation and collaboration. There's something here for everyone so how do craft artists and educators use music (in any form) in their curriculum? Are we missing out on an opportunity to reach students via a medium they can relate to? Kids very much want to experience the immediate practical applications to what they are learning. It doesn't have to be Opera, any music kids relate to can (and should) be used.<br /> <br /> Feel free to share your thoughts and insights.
