About Cruzar la Cara de la Luna: 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.”
