Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles and Mariachi Garibaldi

“Lively holiday spectacular… “—Los Angeles Times

Celebrate the holiday traditions of Nochebuena (Christmas Eve) in San Diego. Artistic directors Kareli Montoya (Ballet Folklórico de Los Ángeles) and Jaime Cuéllar have created a holiday experience celebrating the traditions and customs of Christmas in Mexico with an all-star cast of musicians and dancers. In Mexico, Christmas is a whole season of holiday celebrations that represent a blend of Indigenous cultures, Spanish heritage, and diverse cultural influences. Spirited folk tales are shared through a stunning display of vibrant colors and dance as Mariachi music fills the air.
