Minnesota Opera’s new production, Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, explores the intertwined lives of a Mexican American family on both sides of the border. Countries, choices and consequences all come into play in a rich, intergenerational story that explores the meaning of "home" and "family." Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, which means “to cross the face of the moon," draws on the rich mariachi tradition of music and features a new orchestration that mixes traditional and classical instruments for an inspiring and accessible tapestry of sound. Listen as host Andrea Blain speaks to members of the cast about this exciting new production.
