Javier Martínez / Leonard Foglia
El Milagro del Recuerdo/The Miracle of Remembering
Holiday traditions, Family, and mariachi.
A world premiere and prequel to the mariachi opera Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, El Milagro del Recuerdo/The Miracle of Remembering brings audiences back to where it all began, Michoacán, Mexico. Set during Christmas, the opera lovingly explores the themes of traditions and familial bonds while it's characters deal with life-changing decisions and dream of something more.
By joining librettist and director Leonard Foglia, Mexican composer Javier Martínez continues the legacy of mariachi opera established by his late father, José “Pepe” Martínez.
Sung in Spanish with projected English translation.
