Radio26.Cu – Matanzas, Cuba


Feast in an enchanted countryside

Gloria Machado León 23 diciembre, 2016
Las Estaciones theater offers a very special performance on December 25th at 11:00 am in the Pepe Camejo Room, the Campiña Encantada show (Christmas allegory with figures), a production with more than ten years premiered, from Of the beautiful poem Naranjas y limas,  by Nicolás Guillén, our national poet.

Campiña encantada or Cuento de Navidad,  conceived for the whole family, recreates through traditional figures, dances and carols in time of Cuban, Caribbean and Latin American rhythms, the eternal spirit of that cultural festival of the world.

The mythical legend of Joseph and Mary, way to Nazareth for the birth of the child King. The three wizards of the East, the star of Bethlehem, the creatures of the Creole manger, the sweet song Noche de paz, gifts and the discovery of an illuminated tree, complete the old story, now with a stroke of cha cha, cumbia, joropo, Contradanza and merengue, in musical versions of Raúl Valdés and Andrés Alén.

The artistic direction is in charge of Ruben Darío Salazar, the design is of Zenén Calero and the choreography of Liliam Padrón.
