Teatro Vallarta presents the critically acclaimed stage production ‘Quetzalcoatl, The Legend’, on March, 22 and 23 at 8:00 pm.
After being retaken by Arte y Folclor, Mexico by Aranza Zu Lopez, 15-minute stage production for Puebla’s International Folklore Festival 2016: Danza Sin Fronteras; its resounding success in several festivals, private events and government presentations across central Europe, placing second in the Cheonan World Dance Festival 2018 in South Korea, Teatro Vallarta is proud to present the play ‘Quetzalcoatl, The Legend.’
Quetzalcoatl was one of the principal deities of the pre-Hispanic civilizations, present in almost all of Mesoamerica (Central America) during the XV century, its origin is shrouded in mystery and it is considered by several historians as a legend that marks Mexico'sm syncretism.
Today, ‘Quetzalcoatl, The Legend’ has cemented itself as the company’s magnum opus, and it begins a year of national and international tours. The stage production, which lasts around 1 hour and 30 minutes with a 15-minute intermission, narrates the creation of the world from the Aztec’s cosmic point of view, right until the arrival of Hernan Cortes, who they confuse as the return of Quetzalcoatl.
In a show completely told by dance in five scenes and with the participation of over 50 artists and singer Fabiola Jaramillo ‘The Mexican,’ in a multimedia bonanza. The production includes classic ballet, jazz, contemporary dance, circus art, dramatic art and of course, folklore dance at its core.

The Vallarta Garden Club will hold their next members meeting on Tuesday, March 12, with special guests Talit Leon Mantecon and David Erne speaking on the importance of bees.
Did you know that a large percentage of the food we consume each day relies on pollination, mainly by honeybees? Avocado, squash, cucumbers, citrus fruit and so much more are completely dependent on bees. Yet, honeybees are disappearing globally at an alarming rate. Why? What can be done to save them? How are they populated?
The Vallarta Garden Club is pleased to have Talit Leon Mantecon and David Erne speaking at our next meeting, set to be held at Incanto, Insurgentes #109 at the Rio Cuale, on Tuesday, March 12. Join us at 4:30 pm for Drinks with Friends, followed by their presentation, "Why Bees Matter," at 5:00 pm.
Talit Leon Mantecon is a professional beekeeper with a deep knowledge of the science of bees, particularly honeybees in Mexico. David Erne is a retired attorney from Milwaukee who has been a hobby beekeeper for almost 40 years. Last year, the two of them traveled to Tepic to secure the two hives that have been installed at the Vallarta Botanical Garden. Collectively, these two have a wealth of knowledge on this critical topic and will be our featured speakers at our next membership meeting. So, join us March 12 as we delve into the fascinating world of bees. See you there!
