    A world premiere and prequel to the mariachi opera Cruzar la Cara de la LunaEl 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, familial bonds, and the dream of something more while dealing with life-changing decisions.  

    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.
