Ms. Smither returns to the role of Diana in Cruzar la Cara de la Luna at El Paso Opera.
“Where is home? Is it where we are born? Or where we live most of our lives? Is it with the family we leave behind or with the new ones we create?
Cruzar la Cara de la Luna follows three generations of a single family, divided by countries and cultures. As a Mexican-American man deals with the approaching death of his father, he is forced to face these questions about his own place in the world – straddling two cultures – as well as that of his immigrant father and his American daughter.”
