Join us for Jorge Martín's gorgeous opera Before Night Falls based on the memoirs of Cuban dissident Reinaldo Arenas. 

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 features a stellar cast which includes: Elliot Madore as Reinaldo, Dinyar Vania as Ovidio, Calvin Griffin as Víctor, Javier Abreu as Pepe, and Elizabeth Caballero as Reinaldo's Mother.  It will be conducted by Christopher Allen, and directed by David Gately.
