El Pasado Nunca Se Termina will be available to stream January 25-February 5. This mariachi opera was written by José “Pepe” Martínez and Leonard Foglia, and was presented during Lyric's 2014/15 Season. 

Morelos, Mexico. 1910. The son of a wealthy landowner returns to his parents’s home to find his future… only to fall deeply in love with a humble servant girl. As forbidden personal passions burn, so do political ambitions. It is the eve of the Mexican Revolution, and what happens on the hacienda changes destinies forever.

What do you do when your uncle has wrongfully taken your place as king?
If you’re Jason, you gather your strongest and wisest friends, and set sail on an adventure to win back the throne! This ancient myth of courage and triumph comes to life as Jason and his friends, the Argonauts, search for the Golden Fleece. Along the way, they face sharp rocks, dangerous creatures called sirens, a harrowing dragon, and more trials that ultimately teach them what it means to be a hero.
