Arizona Opera hopes to pique interest in its forthcoming mariachi opera and expand multicultural outreach with the 2014 Hispanic Heritage Festival.

The Festival begins with a panel discussion on immigration and the arts at Arizona Opera Center, kicking off a week of events leading up to the weekend’s season-opening performances of Cruzar la Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face of the Moon).

“The whole purpose of the Festival is to bring together the Hispanic audiences who haven’t necessarily been to the opera before, and expose our opera audiences to this incredible world of mariachi music and cultural richness.”
