Matt (Male, sweet-voiced Baritone or Bari-Tenor, low A to high G,) 19
As a young lover, he is deeply in love, particularly with the idea of being in love. He lacks experience in the world so, while not stupid, he is naive and perhaps even foolish at times. His image of a young man in love is one of a gallant protector, meaning that he approaches some decisions with a falsified bravery that is little more than bravado. Strong acting and must move well.
Luisa (Female, Legit Soprano – High C),18+ to play 16
As a young lover, she is in love. She is in love with love, the idea of love, the idea of being in love and indeed everything remotely romantic. Her dreams are more fanciful than those of Matt. Because of her particular vision of romance, she deals with the world on a particularly naive level. Strong acting and must move well.
The Mute (Male or Female,age open)
The Mute serves many functions-setting props as characters need them, assisting El Gallo, and becoming the wall separating the families. While this is a non-singing, non-speaking role, the actor must have a good sense of rhythm, and dance training is a huge plus. The Mute is a speechless presence who watches and helps tell the story with his/her body or fades into the background unnoticed, when needed. The Mute is an agile physical performer with adept mime skills and dance abilities.
