Special evening at the Teatro Angela Peralta

We started Friday evening with dinner at a new Italian restaurant on Olas Altas located next door to the Freeman Hotel.  Long time blog readers and now friends Jenny and Brad who recently moved here, purchased the tickets for the evening and made the dinner reservation.  Of course it was all my idea :). We all enjoyed our meals at Piccola Roma.

I decided that it was not too far and I could walk to the theatre. Great choice as we got to see this lovely scene.

We were attending a Christmas concert, La Gala Navidena.  Santa was there to welcome us all.

Such a lovely setting.

A great first scene.  The backdrop is actually the street along Olas Altas.

It was a very energetic concert with a wonderful set that included several changes, the costumes, the professional singers, the many dancers, the adult choir in the background one either side of the tree and the children’s chorus were superb.  Note that the backdrop here is the same photo that I took above in my second photo.

Much of the dancing was of a Latina theme but there were even toy soldiers and other surprises throughtout.

The grand finale, here featuring the children’s choir.  Obviously some of these kids are going to be stars, great voices.  That is confetti dropping down.

It also fell on the audience, a good deal it. Glad it was not my job to sweep up.  We exited to several types of snacks and sweets in the foyer as well as Santa giving out huge bags of candy to all the children in the audience.  Truly a lovely Christmas concert.

We just couldn’t go home after all that excitement so we stopped off for a glass of vino before heading home.

It certainly is feeling like Christmas around here.
