To Cross the Face of the Moon / Cruzar la Cara de la Luna
Composer: José Pepe Martinez

Librettist: Leonard Foglia, Leonard Foglia, Leonard Foglia
Synopsis
Where is home? Is it where we are born? Or where we live most of our lives? Is it with the family we leave behind or with the new ones we create? To Cross the Face of the Moon / Cruzar la Cara de la Luna chronicles three generations of a family, divided by countries and cultures. As a Mexican/American man deals with the approaching death of his father, he is forced to face these questions about his own place in the world – straddling two cultures – as well as that of his immigrant father and his American daughter. As long buried secrets are revealed, he finds himself dramatically re-evaluating his own understanding of what makes a family. Like the Monarch butterflies that migrate every year to the birthplace of his father, the members of the Velasquez family must travel both physically and spiritually between Michoacán and Texas and look deep into their hearts before they learn where they truly belong.
