The Music Center presents, Storytelling: "We Tell Stories"

About the performance:

“Cuentos de la Familia” is a program of Latino folk tales that is performed bilingually (in English and Spanish). Hispanic heritage and a love of the language are shown in this fast paced show. A standard performance is comprised of three stories chosen from the following: “Juan Bobo” is a foolish, but very courteous young man, who is sent on an errand by his mother. “El Anciano” is a wise village elder who advises townspeople and settles their disputes; “The Invisible Hunters” is a Miskito Indian tale from Nicaragua about the effects of greed; and “Macario” is the tale of a poor, but unselfish man, who is about to have his greatest wish come true. “The Man Who Understood the Language of Animals” is about trust and love between man and animals and man and wife; “The Day it Snowed Tortillas” shows how a married couple’s strengths and weaknesses can complement each other. Three actors use the company's signature trunk filled with props and costumes to bring the folktales to life.
