Press conferences

May 23, 2015


Raúl Rico coordinated several press conferences for the opera. I was delighted to learn later that the premiere was widely publicized throughout Mexico. Scott Dunn and I had one interview with Raúl Rico as our faithful translator. (This has inspired me to become fluent in Spanish so that I don’t ever have to rely on translators, and besides, it’s a beautiful and great language.)


The second interview involved town scholar, Enrique Vega, a professor and the go-to man with any questions regarding Mazatlán history, including Ángela Peralta. Raúl set up this little panel discussion to go over what Mitchell and I put in the opera about Angela Peralta, and what ACTUALLY happened. Fact versus fiction. Most people in attendance said they liked OUR story better.
