‘A Light in the Dark – La Magia De Selena’ on stage May 11-12 at California Theatre
“A Light in the Dark – La Magia De Selena” brings the magic of the incomparable Selena Quintanilla-Perez, the “Queen of Tejano Music,” to life on stage at the California Theatre.
Using events from her life, along with the memories of people with something special to say, who have loved and admired her, each memory belongs to a voice and each voice we hear sparks a recollection that unfolds and lead us to her music that is woven together with video and photo montages.
From her early hit “Baila Esta Cumbia” to the crossover sensation “I Could Fall in Love,” Selena’s clear range of style is powerful and exciting. Songs she sang as a child blend with her songs of love like “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and “Amor Prohibido,” and songs of love blend with songs of heartbreak like “No Me Queda Mas” and “Fotos y Recuredos.”
The climax of “A Light in the Dark” is an all-out celebration of the energy and talent that was Selena. Fans of her music will love the mix of her hit singles and live covers, and new fans will be made through innovative arrangements of the music.
The cast of “A Light in the Dark” offers more than a tribute to the star. They offer a chance for Selena’s legacy to expand; a chance to see her influence on the music of today, fulfilled.
WHEN: 8 p.m. May 11-12
WHERE: California Theatre of the Performing Arts, 562 W. Fourth St., San Bernardino.
