— Join us for our presentation “XCARET OVERTURE” featuring the Los Angeles Sports Arena. With actual Mayan ball players and cast members from Cancun, March 23rd offers an exciting music and dance preview of the major show. Topping the night will be internationally renowned author and speaker don Miguel Ruiz interpreting the magical symphony of Mexico’s colorful heritage and the timely importance for Xcaret Live in America. Our show is an excerpt of the large show we're bringing from Cancun, Mexico called "Xcaret Mexico Espectacular" in 2012.  This show runs dally at an Eco-park south of Cancun called Xcaret.  The show in itself is a musical chronology of Mexico's folkloric history from Mayan origins to present.  It depicts the Mayan era, the ballgames, the conquest, and the evolution of regional folklore from global occupations that make up Mexico to be one of the most diverse cultures in the world.  The show we're presenting on March the 23rd is a shorter version with the adaption of a narrative/discussion by New York bestseller don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements).  The musical content will be arranged by world class musical director Fermin Herrera who teaches music at the university level, and is one of the most prolific mentors of Harocho, Huasteca, Yucateca, Pre-Colombian, and Mariachi music of our time.  Our philanthropy/mission is to support education above all.  The three charities we've chosen foster comprehensive development for Latino families and higher education attainment.  We believe that the cultural value of our presentation offers a broader look into Mexican culture.  It reveals more than just the typical mariachis and tequila that so popularly defines our heritage most times.  And while mariachis and tequila are fine they are only but a thin layer from the tip of the iceberg of who we really are, and our show makes that perfectly clear.  The expansive display of diverse music and dance unveil a more accurate portrayal  of our heritage.  Xcaret Overture, which is the name for the press release show, is but a taste of that, and it will earn its rightful flavor to be so admired.
