But his plans are turned upside down when he falls in love with Julio; the drug lord's son.

LOVE THEME
FOR ADAN Y JULIO

Sung by Jose Sepulveda and Michael McCorry Rose

Though Adan y Julio y la Frontera 2003 is not a musical, there is music in the play, including this soaring curtain-call anthem that gives the audience the catharsis they need after tragedy ensues.
