The Cubans are coming!
Composer Roberto Valera, soprano Barbara Llanes, and tenor Bryan Lopez will be in New York later this week to present excerpts from the opera to a group of invited guests. Their warmth will melt whatever snow might remain on the ground.
This is their first time in the U.S. It is an exciting time for them, for me, and for our two countries.
After New York, it’s on to San Francisco and Los Angeles.
