Enjoy a sneak preview of the music from the world premiere of this brand new opera based on Rudolfo Anaya's beloved novel.

Bless Me, Ultima—the most famous New Mexican novel—is now an opera.

Opera Southwest, along with the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque and Opera Cultura in California, is thrilled to have commissioned an opera based on Anaya's best-selling novel. The composer, Héctor Armienta, has worked with Mr. Anaya on the libretto and the resulting piece will be an historic event.

Don't miss your chance to experience the story of Tony's coming of age under the watchful guidance of the curandera, Ultima, as part of the opera's expanded 2017-18 Season. Bless Me, Ultima runs from February 18 to 25 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Click here for tickets and info.

Support for the development and commission of the work to date has been provided by the Brabson Library and Educational Foundation, the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation, New Mexico Mutual, Opera Cultura, Opera Southwest, Al and Carmen Castellano and the Knight Foundation.

This is the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with the Friends for the Public Library.
