On February 16th, ÁNIMO Theatre presents "El Bracero - A Mariachi Musical." Set in the 1950s at the height of the Bracero program, El Bracero is a dynamic one-act Mariachi Opera which fuses mariachi music, ballet folklorico, and powerful opera style set pieces. El Bracero highlights the challenges and injustices workers faced in the U.S.|
El Bracero was written by Rosalinda Verde from Visalia, CA and the story is based on Braceros who came to California during World War II as part of the Bracero Program as legal farm laborers.
For 2018, the Revival of El Bracero will bring new songs and a special tribute to Braceros still living in the U.S.
The music in El Bracero is performed by Mariachi Águilas de J. Carlos Ozuna one of the premiere mariachi groups in California.
