FWOpera's upcoming production of Cruzar la Cara de la Luna tells a poignant tale of adversity, forgiveness, and the resilience of the human spirit. Without politicizing the hotly contested issue of border security, the opera’s inspiring narrative humanizes the immigrant experience as it tells the uplifting story of one family across generations. The piece also explores the themes of identity, through two step brothers; one who grew up in the United States with a daughter who doesn’t speak Spanish fluently, and the other a lifelong citizen of Mexico.

Cruzar la Cara de la Luna and FWOpera's upcoming symposium Latino Identity, invite audiences to engage in an open and honest discussion on topics such as discrimination, gender roles, traditions and values, religion, and artistic expression.

Led by moderator Frances de Leon, this symposium features Milo Ramirez, owner of Salsa Limón, Jennifer Ibarra of Blue Zones Project Fort Worth, State Representative Ramon Romero Jr., Erika Beltran of the Texas State Board of Education, and Carlos Rodriguez, Brand Planning Director of the multicultural agency Richards/Lerma. This distinguished group of panelists will share their opinions, personal backgrounds, and discuss how their Latino heritage has defined and shaped their lives.
