A prequel to the sensational Mariachi Opera Cruzar la Cara de la Luna that was presented by Arizona Opera as part of its 2014/2015 season, El Milagro del Recuerdo brings audiences back to where the story of Cruzar all began: Michoacan, Mexico. Set during Christmas, the opera lovingly explores the themes of traditions and familial bonds while its characters deal with life-changing decisions and dream of something more.
