Bless Me, Ultima – the most critically acclaimed novel in the Chicano literary canon, now is 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 Rudolfo Anaya’s best-selling novel Bless Me, Ultima. The composer, Hector 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 our expanded 2017-18 Season.
Support for the development and commission of the work to date has been provided by the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation, New Mexico Mutual, Opera Cultura, Opera Southwest, Al and Carmen Castellano and the Knight Foundation.
