To Cross the Face of the Moon / Cruzar la Cara de la Luna
Composer:José Pepe Martinez
Librettist:Leonard Foglia
Synopsis
Inspired by the diary Walt Whitman kept as a nurse during the Civil War, this world premiere opera explores how the individual experiences of soldiers are remembered and told. As Whitman listens to wounded veterans share their memories and messages, he forges a bond with a soldier who forces him to examine his own role as writer and poet.
