Memories from the World Premiere of Bless Me, Ultima

March 23, 2018

Friends of Opera Cultura

This past February, Friends of Opera Cultura gathered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to experience and celebrate the world premiere of Bless Me, Ultima. Produced by Opera Southwest in association with the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the world premiere took place on February 18th, 2018, and performed to sold out crowds. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this very special event!
It was truly a memorable weekend. Opera Cultura donors and friends made a special trip to see the world premier of Héctor Armienta's opera Bless Me Ultima in Albuquerque New México.  San Jose friends  included  Teresa Alvarado ( San Jose Director of SPUR), Nuria Fernandez ( GM/CEO of the VTA of San Jose ), Rita Elizabeth Horiguchi,  Connie Martinez ( CEO of Silicon Valley Creates),  Kim Walesh ( Deputy City Manager of San Jose), and Fred and Consuelo Yepiz.   The evening prior to the performance on February 18th, Ana Dean hosted a fabulous dinner for all of the Opera Cultura guests and Hector Armienta's family. Guests were treated to a special New Mexican dinner and live entertainment. We want to thank Ana Dean for her incredible hospitality, the talented musicians,  and to those that were able to fly in to be part of a momentous event. 
See you all at the West Coast premiere of Bless Me, Ultima.
