Celebrate Día de los Muertos with Macario, a San José tradition from Teatro Visión that’s full of music and dance, spectacle and song!

Returning for the first time in three years, Macario is the classic story of a poor woodcutter who dreams of a day without hunger. When his wife makes that dream come true, he is given a healing power that could change his family and his community’s lives forever.

Macario is presented in Spanish with supertitles in English and Spanish.
