Mariachi Cobre Presenta the Story of ‘Coco’ at Epcot This Spring
I’ve always loved exploring World Showcase at Epcot and discovering more about each of the countries represented. Now more than ever, it’s a place where you can experience the cultura of those countries, as well as the wonderful stories they’ve inspired.
Today we are very excited to announce that starting March 6, the tender story and vibrant music of Disney•Pixar’s “Coco” comes to the Mexico pavilion, courtesy of the incomparable Mariachi Cobre.
The immensely talented musicians of Mariachi Cobre are joined by a pair of Folklórico dancers to tell the tale of Miguel Rivera, his love of music, and his journey to find what matters most – his familia. The dancers perform to the music of the film, pulling everyone into the celebration, and Miguel himself appears in the form of a whimsical, hand-crafted puppet.
This new “Coco”-inspired show expands the repertoire of Mariachi Cobre, who will also continue enchanting guests at the Mexico pavilion with performances of traditional mariachi music.
Gather your familia, and make plans to join us this spring as Mariachi Cobre presents the story and music of “Coco,” beginning March 6 during the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
