A message from Esperanza del Valle:

Esperanza del Valle is delighted to share our celebration with you and to send a warm heartfelt thanks to Luis Valdez and the Teatro Campesino family for hosting our annual performances at El Teatro Campesino Playhouse. Take on a journey with us to discover the beautiful son from various regions of Mexico; each with unique style, flavor and interpretation. After almost four decades of learning from Mexico’s master teachers, choreographers and keepers of the tradition, we are proud to present a tapestry of sones, huapangos, polkas and the shotiz from various regions of Mexico. Known for our original choreodramas, Esperanza del Valle presents two dance dramas – El Corrido de Rosita Alvirez and El Corrido de los Dos Hermanos. With the amazing music by Cuatro con Tres, you will truly enjoy this special 2018 Día de los Muertos performance.

“If the last 50 years have taught us anything, it is that theater is a creator of community, and that community is the creator of theater. You are our community and our familia. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of Alcario and Carmen Castellano, and all of you- our donors and supporters -a new era of El Teatro Campesino is about to begin in celebration of our 50th anniversary!”
– Luis Valdez
