World Premiere!

New Mariachi Opera

It was the eve of the Mexican Revolution and a smoldering restlessness fueled by abject poverty permeated the country. Peasants turned into soldiers and soldiers into revolutionaries who sought to reclaim land that had been theirs for centuries. 

On a hacienda in Morelos, south-central Mexico, as cultures clash, these conflicts boil to the surface and will impact generations to come. Some will emerge to change the face of Mexico while others will become the new face of the American Dream.

Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, with music by Pepe Martínez and story by Leonard Foglia, was one of the smash hits of the 2013 season! Be there when Lyric presents the world premiere of their latest collaboration!

"Lyric's fusion of opera and mariachi brought the crowd to its feet!"
Chicago Tribune

Directed by Leonard Foglia
