Houston Grand Opera's first-ever mariachi opera centers around an elderly Mexican-American man living in Houston who, on his death bed, reveals to his grown son and teenage granddaughter that he left a second family in Mexico when he immigrated to the United States as a migrant worker. His dying wish is to see them one last time before he dies.
It was commissioned through HGOs Song of Houston project and was inspired by Mexico's famous Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán.
A re-staging of the historic world premiere and first-ever mariachi opera, with accompaniment by The University of Texas Pan American's award-winning Mariachi Aztlan, will take place Dec. 3, 4, and 5 in conjunction with Talento Bilingüe de Houston.
