About the Event

LORE Media & Arts – Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company presents an unforgettable performance of dance, music, art, and ritual that will take audiences on a voyage of emotions, movement, and sound that celebrate the rich traditions of Dia de Los Muertos and splendor of Mexican folk dance. Grandeza celebrates its 20th anniversary with an incredible night showcasing Mexico’s grandeur. Intermixed in the program will be iconic folk art, sculptured sugar skulls, and altars by Día de Muertos specialist LORE Media & Arts. The program invites the audience to celebrate death as a natural phase in life’s continuum and to honor the traditions of Mexican and Native Mesoamerican cultures.

Día de los Muertos—which is celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world—centers on remembering friends and family who have passed away.
