Luna Mexicana | Oakland Ballet Company
Luna Mexicana is a dance and music celebration of the iconic Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos! In Luna Mexicana, a young woman’s dreams revive her relatives and friends who all dance back to life in the forms of teetering skeletons, skirt swishing girls, a high flying “deer dancer,” and a deathly Bride and Groom.
This family friendly performance is filled with festive dancing, colorful costumes, and vibrant music including traditional Mexican folk music and witty electronic fusions. Audience members are encouraged to attend in Day of the Dead attire.
Join us in the theater lobby prior to the performance to visit the ofrendas, provided by the Oakland Museum of California, contribute a memory to the Tree of Life, enjoy refreshments including tamales, pan de muerto, Mexican hot chocolate and more!
