The last friday Poppy Forum was filled to listen to one of the most relevant female voices in the musical theatre from Saltillo in recent years: that of Adriana Molinawho, accompanied by a group of musicians, once again performed some jewels from her repertoire.
The event began shortly after 8:00 p.m., in the multidisciplinary auditorium located next to Plaza España, on Valdés Sánchez boulevard, with the song “Today I feel so beautiful” from the musical West Side Story (or Love without barriers in Spanish) by Leonard Bernstein, whose lyrics, the singer assured, reflect the gratitude she felt to see the place full in support of her career.
He then performed “Blackbirds and Nightingale” by Sweeney Todd by Andrew Lloyd Webber, a musical that was recently presented in the city under the production of Fourth Wall Theater and where the artist embodied the protagonist’s daughter, the young Johanna Barker.
Immediately it was the turn of “It hurts” from the last five years by Jason Robert Brown, with whom she returned to the stage at the beginning of 2021, right there in Poppy Forumafter more than a year of inactivity due to the pandemic.

He then sang “Breathe” by in the heights by Lin-Manuel Miranda, followed by “Think of me” from the classic The Phantom of the Operaa magnum opus by Andrew Lloyd Webber, which has not been staged recently in Saltillo, but could have a Christine Daaé in Molina.
The audience was also able to hear other songs in Adriana’s voice such as “Verano en Ohio”, also by the last five years; “Stay in Madrid” by Today I can not get up of Nacho Cano and José María Cano; “In my little corner” of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Cinderellaas well as another of West Side Storythe piece “I have a love, a man like that” —which he performed together with navid rodriguez—; “The more you love someone” from Avenue Q by Robert López —accompanied by Isabella Alvarado—; the mythical “I dreamed a dream” of The Miserables by Claude Michel Schoenberg; “Popular” of wicked by Stephen Shwartz and culminated with “Recuerdos” by cats by Lloyd Webber.
