After successful runs in Chicago and Paris, the Houston Grand Opera's famed Mexican-American musical saga, "Cruzar La Cara de La Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon)" comes to VPAC. Following three generations of a single clan, the world's first Mariachi opera finds a man caught between two cultures and generations -- that of his immigrant father and American daughter. But when long-held secrets are suddenly revealed, he's forced to find the true meaning of family. Sung in Spanish with English subtitles -- and as timely as ever -- this original L.A. production features Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán, whose late director José "Pepe" Martínez composed the opera's music and co-wrote the lyrics with the book author Leonard Foglia. To make your night as fun and stress-free as possible, parking is included with your ticket.
