Unforgettable opera productions of the highest quality do not require huge financial investments. What is required is that opera speak the truth and that this truth comes from deep in the hearts of all those involved. Today’s performance [2022-23 SMMT Winners’ Concert, March, 2023] reaffirmed for me that only the sky is the limit for our art form. Thank you, Maestros Conde and Sarre, for your commitment, your discipline, your dedication. Thank you, sopranos Dulce Guadarrama and Cristina Nakad, for your passion, your talent. Thank you, San Miguel MetOpera Trust and Joan Mitchell, for your commitment to our culture and to our Mexican artists.
