CRUZAR LA CARA DE LA LUNA DESCRIPTIONS:

Cruzar la Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon), an HGO original commission and the world’s first mariachi opera, returns to Houston after its recent New York premiere with New York City Opera. This timely story of an immigrant family divided by the U.S./Mexican border has earned raves from critics and audiences worldwide. The New York Times stated that the subject of immigration “is explored with affecting sensitivity in this rich, honest opera.” And The New Yorker says, the music is “uplifting yet nostalgic.”

A Mexican-American man questions his own place in the world as he straddles two cultures: his immigrant father's and his own as a first-generation American. As he faces his father's imminent death and long-buried secrets are revealed, he finds himself dramatically re-evaluating his own understanding of what makes a family. Set against a vibrant mariachi score performed by the Mariachi Los Camperos ensemble, the story of three generations shifts between the past and the present, Mexico and Texas, Spanish and English.

Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, una comisión original de HGO y la primera ópera de mariachi del mundo, regresa a Houston después de su reciente estreno en Nueva York con New York City Opera. Esta historia oportuna de una familia de inmigrantes dividida por la frontera de EE. UU./Mexica ha recibido elogios de críticos y audiencias de todo el mundo. The New York Times declaró que el tema de la inmigración "se explora con la sensibilidad que afecta en esta ópera rica y honesta". Y The New Yorker dice que la música es "alentadora pero nostálgica".

Un hombre Mexico-estadounidense cuestiona su propio lugar en el mundo, ya que abarca dos culturas: la de su padre inmigrante y la suya propia como estadounidense de primera generación. Mientras se enfrenta a la muerte inminente de su padre y se revelan secretos ocultos desde hace mucho tiempo, se encuentra a sí mismo evaluando dramáticamente su propia comprensión de lo que hace a una familia. En contraste con un vibrante puntaje de mariachi interpretado por Mariachi Los Camperos, la historia de tres generaciones cambia el pasado y el presente, México y Texas, español e inglés.
