Celebration of LOVE Mexico style. Live Music and Dance with Calpulli Mexican Dance Company and its Mariachi Band.

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company explores a new production by Artistic Director Alberto Lopez Herrera inspired by the traditions that accompany the union of two people as expressed by different ethnic groups, stories, and eras in Mexico’s rich cultural history.

The company of 16 dancers and core of musicians return to the Thalia Spanish Theatre from March 4th through March 20th with “Boda Mexicana.”  The program includes the debut of Ritual de Primavera (Rite of Spring) by Resident Choreographer Roberto Lara inspired by Mayan myths set to original music by Music Director George Saenz. The program also includes a debut of Sinaloense Soy (I am Sinaloan) by Alberto Lopez Herrera set to brass band music. The program captures a timeless love story, its struggles and triumphs, as told through dance and music.

“Terrific Company!” -New York Times

For the last 13 years, Calpulli recreates folk dances celebrating Mexican traditions and new works which employ non-traditional dance forms, all with live musical accompaniment. In their second engagement, Calpulli and Thalia Spanish Theatre are exploring a new production to become part of the dance company’s repertoire for years to come.

A musical for the entire family in the universal languages of LIVE Music and Dance!
