Before Night Falls Meeting RSVP

Hello Opera Teens! This season FGO is doing Before Night Falls. *Based on the famous memoir of Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas, Before Night Falls follows Arenas’ life from childhood poverty in the Cuban countryside to his emigration to the United States in the 1980 Mariel boatlift and his last decade in New York City.The opera follows his trials and tribulations as a political prisoner disillusioned by the Cuban Revolution and persecuted by the Castro regime as a dissident writer and homosexual who was forced to smuggle his manuscripts abroad for publication. We are lucky enough to have the composer, Jorge Martín, with us for the run of the show, and if you come to the sitzprobe he will be more than happy to talk to us! On monday the 6th we will have a meeting at the Doral Offices from 6-7pm. Along with discussing Before Night Falls we will talk about contemporary opera as a whole. As usual there will also be snacks! We hope to see you all there and invite as many friends as you can! RSVP Below
