David Gonzalez presents “Cuentos: Tales from the Latino World”

Family Series, Ordway Concert Hall

Cuentos paints a vivid picture of the people and rich cultures of the Spanish-speaking world with colorful tales from the Caribbean, South America, and the Bronx! From the silly antics of the Puerto Rican anti-hero “Juan Bobo” to the mysterious dealings and powers of the Orishas in a suite of Afro-Cuban stories, these tales are filled with memorable characters, fantastic plots and positive messages for children. Spanish language words are sprinkled throughout the stories and songs in such a way that young audiences can repeat and retain their sound and meaning. Solid entertainment and a great introduction to the marvelous world of Latino literature and culture.

Lap Passes

Lap passes will be $5 each, and will only be available at the ticket office the day of the performance. They are for children under 3 only.

There are a limited number of passes allowed for these events, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis while quantities last.
