Based on the famous memoir of Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas, Jorge Martín’s Before Night Falls follows Arenas’ life from childhood poverty in the Cuban countryside to his emigration to the United States in the 1980 Mariel boatlift, and his last decade in New York City. Disillusioned by the Cuban Revolution and persecuted by the Castro regime as a dissident writer and homosexual, the opera follows his trials and tribulations as a political prisoner forced to smuggle his manuscripts abroad for publication. In 2000, Before Night Falls was made into an award-winning feature film directed by Julian Schnabel and starring Javier Bardem and Johnny Depp. Sung in English & Spanish with projected titles in both languages. Sunday, March 18 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, March 19 at 2 p.m.; Tuesday, March 21 at 8 p.m.; Friday, March 24 at 8 p.m.; and Saturday, March 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $16 to $229.
