Here are a few photos of the FAOT. The International 2009 Festival Dr. Alfonso Ortiz Tirado.
I never imagined I would be sitting in Mexico, in an old colonial building, listening to opera.
The salsa, tango and cuban music has been plentiful and very energetic.
Classical music in the church has been very moving. I have been twice to the church for the classical music only to find that I missread the program times. So, I have been to mass twice now. The music they sing here during mass is very moving also, very folkloric, very melodic, it should be part of the festival.
