Description: The Hispanic neighborhood of Barelas in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from the year 1680 to 2206. Although most characters are fictional, the opera starts with the historical event of Don Barelas’s murder. The soldier who commits the crime, Don Ignacio, and Barelas’s daughter Marcelina, are the central characters of the story. Following a shaman’s curse, they are fated to fall in love through the ages. While Don Ignacio lives in shame and remorse, Marcellina only gradually becomes aware of his true identity. Her forgiveness of Ignacio ends the work in hope and affirmation.
