Day of the Dead LIVE! with diabolical music from classical and popular composers, Mexican and European, a one-hour piano performance with larger-than-life puppets, all themed around Halloween and Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos).

Day of the Dead LIVE! takes you on a musical and visual journey that is all FUN.

There’s music for adults and children of all ages, plus delightful fantasies for the child in all of us. Opening with Saint-Saen’ Danse Macabre, we travel from Dante’s Inferno to Paradiso in Liszt’s Dante Sonata; we hear popular songs of Mexican folk composers like Rubio and Velázquez; rhapsodic compositions by Mexican classical composers like Chávez and Ponce. The music is performed by gifted virtuoso pianist Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner. The merry life-sized puppets, jugglers, and dancers from the creative circus-trained aerialist Juanita Cardenas. Expect ghosts, skeletons, and ghoulish surprises!
