Prepare for an evening of swirling colors, music and a lively piñata scene when the dancers, singers and musicians of Compañía Mazatlán Bellas Artes present Posada Navideña. Under the artistic direction of Steven Valencia, this holiday celebration honors—through dance, music and costumes—many of Mexico's distinct cultural regions. In addition to the performance of Mexican holiday songs, a traditional Christmas processional and a finale of dance and music, a new piece choreographed by guest artist David Lopez-Mancilla will premiere.
