Playa del Carmen, Mexico -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/20/2014 -- In the spring of 2014, the Riviera Maya's premier music and performing arts school, Explayarte Escuela de Musica, will present Tim Rice and Elton John's AIDA. There will be three presentations in the Foro Abierto at Xcaret in Playa del Carmen, March 19, 20 and 23 and, or the first time, two additional shows have been added to the run to be performed at the Teatro de Cancun on April 4 & 5. A portion of all proceeds from all AIDA performances will go to support the Playa del Carmen Seaside Rotary charitable fund.
This exciting production, directed by Fernando Gonzalez, will feature the talents of 30 young dancers, singers and musicians. Almost all are middle and high school students from local Riviera Maya schools. The stylistically eclectic score will be conducted by Musical Director Aldo Sotomayor and performed live by Explayarte's orchestra.
AIDA will be the 7th full-scale musical presentation by Explayarte whose previous theatrical successes include Jesus Christ Superstar, Pippin, Cats, Seussical, All Shook Up and Les Miserables. If you have enjoyed any or all of these productions, you won't want to miss AIDA. The book and lyrics have been translated into Spanish for this production but English speakers unfamiliar with the plot can familiarize themselves with the synopsis, which will be printed in the playbill.
“It is imperative that the business leaders of the region support cultural opportunities for the youth in our community.” stated Rob Kinnon, corporate sponsor and owner of BuyPlaya Real Estate Advisors “The Seaside Rotary Club and Explayarte have demonstrated a true commitment to improving the lives of children in Playa del Carmen and we are behind them all the way.”
