Description:
The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Ballet Folclórico Nacional de México de Silvia Lozano on Friday, March 20, 2020.

Experience a grand performance of art and culture with Ballet Folclórico Nacional de México de Silvia Lozano. Focused on the preservation and promotion of the culture of Mexico, both at home and abroad, the ensemble brings magnificent traditional costumes, fascinating rituals, and beautiful music to take you on a wonderful choreographic journey through the different regions of Mexico.

With an artistic career spanning over 56 years, the Ballet Folclórico Nacional de México (BFNM) reflects the work of Mexico’s leading researchers and practitioners of folklore, dance, music, and costumes. The BFNM has performed in over 40 countries on five continents, receiving numerous awards and prizes and being designated an Ambassador of Mexican Culture. In addition to its international tours, the BFNM maintains residences in Mexico City and Cancun.

Previous significant tours and performances by the BFNM include the El Grito Mexican Independence Day Celebration at the Miller Outdoor Theatre and the Mexican Consulate of Houston, Texas, in September 2016; a 60-day tour of France and Switzerland in 2011; a 75-day tour through the Netherlands and Belgium in 2009; and a performance for the inauguration of the Dubai Shopping Festival 2002, upon the invitation of Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktum, vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates.

The ensemble was featured in the original production of Xcaret Mexico Espectacular, which was featured 365 days a year for nearly 20 years, with over 200 artists taking the stage throughout its run. This show was directed and choreographed entirely by Silvia Lozano, general director and choreographer of BFNM.
