The story of a traveler’s walk through the legends and colorful history of Veracruz, Mexico, VIVA VERACRUZ! THE SHOW will now premiere at the PH Showroom inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Friday, August 22 at 7 p.m.
An amazing adventure told with spectacular dance and music, traditional and modern elements, artisanal handicrafts and cutting-edge technology, VIVA VERACRUZ! THE SHOW was commissioned by the state government of Veracruz, Mexico. Produced by renowned Mexican producer Luis De Llano-Stevens and long-time producer Alex Esqueda, VIVA VERACRUZ! THE SHOW creates a remarkable stage production as an homage to the “Son Jarocho” or folklore, songs, music and dance of Veracruz.
Divided into 12 choreographed dance numbers, the show is composed of a series of vignettes, delicately interlaced in a rich, dynamic and eclectic program. The music is a combination of original compositions and traditional songs such as the world-famous “La Bamba.” Salsa, Danzon, contemporary dance and, of course, Jarocho, the original Veracruz dance, confront each other, resulting in a beautiful combination of cultures and traditions.
VIVA VERACRUZ! THE SHOW will be Thursday through Tuesday, beginning Friday, August 22. All shows begin at 7 p.m.
