Opera Cultura is bringing together a wonderful group of artists to present new excerpts from Héctor Armienta's opera, Bless Me Ultima. In preparation for the reading, there will be a series of Youth Writing Workshops at MACLA in which Mr.Armienta  & beat boxer/hip hop artist Carlos Aguirre will work with young aspiring artists to explore musical composition and the themes of family throughout the novel.
The reading is a unique opportunity to be part of the process of launching a new opera. Want to see a behind-the-scenes rehearsal? Or join Mr. Armienta and selected artists for an intimate conversation about the work? Join the Bless Me Ultima fundraising campaign!
