eventdetail
MECA

La Música del Cielo (Music from Heaven) is an interpretation of a classic Mexican Pastorela (shepherds play), a centuries-old popular theater-piece with music and dance presented around Christmas time. All Pastorelas tell the story of shepherds on their way to Bethlehem to greet the Christ child and how devils try to stop them. Pastorelas are traditionally comic, irreverent and politically savvy. The art form is part pageant, comedy review, morality play, political commentary and song and dance spectacle.

La Música del Cielo (Music from Heaven), written and directed by Peter Webster, will be presented in Spanish with English surtitles. The piece is designed for family audiences, ages three and up. Audiences are encouraged to come early for "A Taste of a Mexican Christmas" before the show, including tamales and hot chocolate.
