Fiesta Mexicana

A 75-minute performance special – hosted by Hispanic singing icon Vikki Carr – that celebrates the music and dance of the different regions of Mexico. This performance spectacular is anchored by a Gala concert at the historic Teatro Juarez in the ancient mining city of Guanajuato. In addition to the Gala, Fiesta Mexicana showcases mariachi and jarocho (the music of the Vera Cruz region) performances at locations around the city and state of Guanajuato. Joining Vikki Carr at the Gala and on location are Mexican singing legends Eugenia Leon and Alberto Angel “El Cuervo,” Vera Cruz jarocho group Tlen Huicani and the world-famous LA-based mariachi group Los Camperos de Nati Cano. Joining all these artists on stage at the Teatro Juarez in Guanajuato is the Orquesta Sinfonico of the University of Guanajuato, one of Mexico’s leading regional orchestras, and the full company of the Ballet Folklorico of the University of Guanajuato, fresh from their triumphant 2007 European tour. Directed by Leo Eaton. A co-production of Eaton Creative, Habanero Films & Donn Rogosin Productions. Airing on PBS Summer 2008.
