FALL In Love With Everything Arts & Culture At ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station

This year’s annual program is titled “Ritmos Latinos”, a performance merging Latin rhythms and ballet, will feature two of San Diego Ballet’s audience favorites, Que Bonito Amor and Mambomania. Audiences will be able to enjoy this incredible merging of cultures during the performance.

“San Diego Ballet is committed to the presentation of work that speaks to our Southern California audiences. Our annual Ritmos Latinos program is just one of the ways we do this,” said Javier Velasco, Artistic Director of San Diego Ballet. “These offerings feature ballets set to Latin music in a way that celebrates both the music and the dance equally. We are thrilled to bring back this tradition with 2 audience favorites.”

Two of San Diego Ballet’s audience favorites, Que Bonito Amor and Mambomania, will be performed each day:

  • Que Bonito Amor: Get swept away in the evocative and romantic Que Bonito Amor set to rapturous score of Mariachi music. This piece is a valentine to the senses of joy and community that come from the sounds of Mariachi music.
  • Mambomania: One of Artistic Director Javier Velasco’s sizzling signature works, Mambomania is set to the music of Velasco’s childhood and danced with a great deal of dynamism.

Ritmos Latinos will be held over two weekends, October 30-31 and November 6-7. Tickets are available for purchase online here and include assigned seating near the stage ($30-$40) and open lawn seating ($10); senior, military and student discounts available.
