The duality of grief and joy of the Day of the Dead celebration is captured in this concert that begins and ends with the rollicking, exuberant music of Mexico by two of its greatest living composers, Arturo Rodríguez and Arturo Marquez.

In between are works that explore the darker side of humanity: Yin-Yin, which was inspired by a poem about the death of a cousin, and the tortured love story of Manuel de Falla’s El Amour Brujo, whose story will be told with shadow puppetry by Redmoon.
