Folk and native traditions in song and dance will guide audiences through the influences that led to the famous battle, its heroes, and the undeniable Mexican spirit that continues to inspire us today. Traditional and contemporary dance, live music, and meticulous costuming capture the essence of the French and Mexican characters that defined history. Ages 4+
