CLASSICAL MUSIC IN MEXICO CITY
Finding out what's going on culturally in Mexico City can be a frustrating experience. Although I try my best to be on top of things, I'm constantly coming across posters and notices about events that happened yesterday.
A recent discovery of a useful website will help, at least in the area of classical music. You may want to bookmark this website:
They even have a listing of the opera season at Bellas Artes, where I discovered this rarity--in April, two performances of the opera ATZIMBA, based on an episode of the conquest of Michoacán, by Mexican composer Ricardo Castro. It was supposedly a bit hit when it was first done in 1900.
