San Diego Ballet commences its 2021-2022 fall season with a weekend of shows safely outside in the picturesque Ingram Plaza in Arts District Liberty Station. This year’s annual program is titled Ritmos Latinos, a performance merging Latin rhythms and ballet, will feature two of San Diego Ballet’s audience favorites, “Que Bonito Amor” and “Mambomania.” Audiences will be able to enjoy this incredible merging of cultures during the performance at 2:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, November 6 and 7.

“San Diego Ballet is committed to the presentation of work that speaks to our Southern California audiences. Our annual Ritmos Latinos program is just one of the ways we do this,” said Javier Velasco, artistic director of San Diego Ballet. “These offerings feature ballets set to Latin music in a way that celebrates both the music and the dance equally. We are thrilled to bring back this tradition with two audience favorites.”

Get swept away in the evocative and romantic “Que Bonito Amor” set to rapturous score of Mariachi music. This piece is a valentine to the senses of joy and community that come from the sounds of Mariachi music. One of Artistic Director Javier Velasco’s sizzling signature works, “Mambomania” is set to the music of Velasco’s childhood and danced with a great deal of dynamism.
