When Luis Luján and Andrea Mottura of Bohemia Viva first arrived in San Miguel de Allende in July for what was to be only a couple of weeks of performances at Teatro Santa Ana, they never imagined how the town would embrace them. “We are so grateful and owe many thanks to the audiences who filled Teatro Santa Ana, resulting in a sold-out performance on August 27. We have so many new friends,” said Andrea Mottura. “We’re thrilled to have added one last show for the summer season before we travel back to Puerto Vallarta.” With new lighting and sound being installed for the event, this special show will showcase the theater as well as the artists. The popular duo will present a final and all-new show at the charming and historic Las Trojes Theater, November 7, 2015, at 5:30 pm, to benefit the children’s programs offered by La Biblioteca Pública of San Miguel de Allende. After this performance, Luján and Mottura will return to the legendary Palm Cabaret and Bar in Puerto Vallarta, where they have been a huge hit for the past several years. “During the 90-minute concert, the duo will perform a variety of Italian, English, Portuguese, and Spanish favorites as well as original compositions in a show full of wonderful energy, incredible voices, and an eclectic style that takes you on a special musical journey that you’ll not soon forget. Beautiful acoustic Latin rhythms and timeless classics are combined with rich, sensual harmonies in a unique art-filled style. Their personalities and stories of their travels around the world complement their music wonderfully,” said artistic director Tracy Parks, who brought many shows (Bohemia Viva, Amy Armstrong, Greater Tuna) to San Miguel over the summer and plans to return with more next summer. One year ago, the duo traveled to Italy for a series of shows and a special sold-out concert at Villa Farsetti, performing with musicians from Venezuela, Argentina, and Italy. In collaboration with Allan G. Shephard, who has been music great Phil Collins’ sound engineer, their show sold out more than 500 seats at the enchanting, historical Italian villa at the conclusion of their trip. Las Trojes Theater is located at Calzada de la Presa 50, Zona Centro. Tickets for Bohemia Viva’s show are available at the Teatro Santa Ana box office at the Biblioteca or by calling 415 152 0293, ext 116.
