CHALE, a musician of Chicano, Mexican American, heritage – finally hits the BIG TIME and is a world sensation! As his UNIQUE style of music is finally exposed to the world, so is his OUTDATED pseudo machismo! TRAGEDY strikes at his final concert performance! HOW did this horrible incident happen, and WHY? We go back in time, where his band performed at dive Go Go bars to make ends meet, for answers! SEXY dancers groove, and sing – to the sounds of Chale’s music, all of who catch his wondering eye. One in particular – a drop dead Goddess, ANTONELLA – steals his heart and much, much more! There’s one slight problem, she’s ……..! That never stopped him before. Be careful, what you pray for – because you just might get it (and more that you bargained for) like a STRONG Latina woman! Precisely why, A NIGHT at the CHICANO ROCK OPERA – a night of an exhilarating chicano rock concert, erotic dancing, and romantic tragedy – will bear you more than YOU bargained for!
