To celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the El Paso Symphony Orchestra is giving new life to one of Disney/Pixar’s most beloved films: Coco.
“We are so thrilled to bring this unique film and event that celebrates the traditions, love for culture and family that our community holds dear!” says Ruth Ellen Jacobson, Executive Director. “Being able to present it on Dia de los Muertos day, Saturday, November 2, 2019, made perfect sense.”
Conductor James Welsch will lead the El Paso Symphony Orchestra performing Michael Giacchino’s beautiful score on the Plaza Theatre stage, while the award-winning film plays on a screen above the orchestra.
The film Coco is set during the Diá de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday of remembrance. It tells the story of a boy named Miguel and his music-filled journey to the “Land of the Dead” where he meets his ancestors and uncovers a hidden secret about his family.
The special performance is scheduled for Saturday, November 2, 2019, 7:30pm at the Plaza Theatre. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 13, 2019 at 10am.
Ticket prices are $60, $55, $45 and $25 plus fees.
The El Paso Symphony Orchestra is supported in part by the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department, the Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
