A Dia de los Muertos Celebration
"...a production so polished it looks ready for a world tour."
Ofrenda: A Dia de los Muertos Celebration debuted at San Diego’s Rady Shell on October 31, 2021, to a sold-out audience! One of Mexico’s most beloved holidays, Dia de los Muertos celebrates the lives of loved ones who have passed on by building an Ofrenda, a home altar decorated with a collection of objects, candles, marigold flowers and photos of our dearly departed. Ofrenda: A Dia de los Muertos Celebration features traditional music and dance from different regions, including “La Bruja” from Veracruz, “Dance de Tare Ambakitis” from Nayarit, as well as the amazing music from the Disney movie “Coco”. All this is interspersed with tributes to great Mexican artists such as Juan Gabriel, Selena, Jose Infante, and Alejandro Fernandez. The live Mariachi and our original traditional costumes all contribute to create an unforgettable visual and musical experience. Ofrenda is a show for the entire family. Entertaining and fun for the kids, moving and exciting for the grown up, also sweet and filled with memories for our Abuelitas and Abuelitos. While typically celebrated on November 1 and 2, we tour this show during the last two weeks of October and in early November.
"The welcome from 'Ofrenda' was so spectacular, surely the nearly 3,000 living souls at the Rady Shell on Sunday were surrounded by legions of spirits, drawn to the heart-melting singing, thrilling percussive footwork, and parade of vivid costumes."
