Cruzar la Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon)

Cruzar la Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon)MARIACHI VARGAS DE TECALITLÁN
A Mariachi Opera
Music by José “Pepe” Martínez
Lyrics by José “Pepe” Martínez and Leonard Foglia
Book by Leonard Foglia

A mariachi opera about three generations of two families with one border that divides them.

Tackling a timely tale, these legendary Mexican artists combine their traditional music with high drama to depict the cross-border story of two families and three generations. The band’s late Music Director José “Pepe” Martínez composed the opera, joining forces with writer Leonard Foglia to create a full-length mariachi opera that premiered in 2010 at Houston Grand Opera. Seven years later, its themes of human struggle are more relevant than ever. VPAC presents the Los Angeles premiere, following successful performances in Chicago and Paris.
