EVENT INFORMATION

US Premiere of Gabriela Ortiz’s Camelia La Tejana – Only The Truth

March 24 @ 2:00 pm
March 30 @ 8:00 pm

Terrace Theater 300 E. Ocean Blvd. Long Beach CA

Camelia La Tejana – Only The Truth is based on a popular Mexican ballad, “Contrabando Y Traicion” (Smuggling and Betrayal). This docu-opera, lifted from the headlines, follows Camelia la Tejana and her lover as they smuggle drugs across the border to Los Angeles. The payoff becomes a deadly showdown! Mexican composer Gabriela Ortiz creates a pulsing score that fuses classical and Mexican influences.

Presented by Long Beach Opera
