The great Mariachi Vargas De Tecalitlán returns in our 50th Anniversary Season with an entirely new Mariachi opera from the same team which created Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, the sold-out hit in 2013. In 1910, Hailey’s Comet appeared in the sky over Mexico and many believed it foretold bloodshed and upheaval to come. Smoldering restlessness fueled by abject poverty force cultural clashes and impact generations to come in El Pasado Nunca se Termina.
