​Tackling a timely tale, these legendary artists combine their traditional mexican music with yhigh drama to depict the cross-border story of two families and three generations. The band’s late Music Director José “Pepe” Martínez composed the opera, joining forces with writer Leonard Foglia to create a full-length mariachi opera that premiered in 2010 at Houston Grand Opera. Seven years later, its themes of human struggle are more relevant than ever. VPAC presents the Los Angeles premiere, following successful performances in Chicago and Paris.
