Retta Blaney is producing the event. Missionaries premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in the early 1990s. According to production notes, the composer used "the words of the women, taken from their journals and letters, and sermons of Archbishop Oscar Romero, as the libretto and lyrics, with music from the Mass and Latino culture woven throughout."
Swados developed the 90-minute work over a 10-year period.
