Music of Remembrance presents Tres minutos
May 15, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$47
Hear their story: a family separated by a border
Featuring the world premiere of Tres minutos, the one-act opera that we’ve commissioned from composer Nicolas Benavides and librettist Marella Martin Koch, with dramaturg Hector Vega. Soprano Vanessa Isiguen and baritone José Rubio star in the roles of Nila and Diego, a sister and brother who share family bonds but not citizenship. Allowed a brief supervised reunion at the US-Mexico border that separates them, they wrestle with questions of identity, duty and belonging. The compelling work explores the intimate human dimensions of an important issue for our time.
