Before Night Falls Dress Rehearsal RSVP

This Thursday March 16, is the Dress Rehearsal for Before Night Falls.  This is a very provocative opera. 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. It is a 21st century opera, and we are very lucky for the chance to meet the composer Jorge Martín. Please arrive at the Arsht at 6:30 pm. You may be fancy or dressed down. Many girls do wear dresses and heels, but it is not required. Security has been raised at the arsht and you may only bring a small purse. Make sure to wear your FGO badges if you have one. RSVP below!
