REYES & MARIACHIS
Friday, January 6- 8:00 pm
New Date: January 15 at 5pm
Whether you call it Twelfth Night, Epiphany or Día de Reyes almost every culture based in Christianity has celebrations commemorating the end of the journey for Three Kings or Wise Men. In many cultures this day is celebrated with feasts, ceremony and especially music. In Mexico, children receive gifts from the three wise kings (Reyes Magos), cities are packed with food stalls, parties, and the traditional music of Mariachi bands. It is also customary to eat Rosca de Reyes, which is a wreath-shaped fruity bread baked with a figure of baby Jesus inside. Join Teatro Aurora as we strike up the band and end the Christmas season with a bang.
More about the Rosca de Reyes tradition
Rosca de Reyes is a sweet bread which is a special food for King’s Day. “Rosca” means wreath and “Reyes” means kings. The bread is shaped in the form of a wreath and usually has candied fruit on top, and a figurine of a baby baked inside. In Mexico it is customary for friends and family to get together on this occasion to eat rosca. Much like the Mardi Gras King Cake, the person who is served a piece of rosca with the figurine is expected to host a party on Día de la Candelaria (Candlemas), celebrated on February 2nd.
On this special festivity, Teatro Aurora will award the winner of the baby figurine with 2 tickets to our Sangría, Tapas y Flamenco event on February 11!
