Premiere: Bless Me, Ultima Radio Broadcast
September 12, 2020
On Albuquerque’s Classical 95.5 KHFM and 98.7 WFMT-FM in Chicago
A live national broadcast of the world premiere performance of the opera Bless Me, Ultima, on Albuquerque’s Classical 95.5 KHFM and 98.7 WFMT-FM in Chicago, hosted by Valerie Martinez. Opera Southwest, along with the National Hispanic Cultural Center and San Jose’s Opera Cultura, is thrilled to have commissioned this work based on Rudolfo Anaya’s best-selling novel. The composer, Hector Armienta, worked with Mr. Anaya on the libretto, and the resulting production, which premiered at the NHCC in February of 2018, was an historic event.
