QCOSTARICA – The celebration of 200 years of independence is approaching and what better way to celebrate than with good music and remembering our history.
Two of the most important groups in the country, such as Los Ajenos and Marfil, came together to serenade Costa Rica on its bicentennial.
“Welcome to Costa Rica” is the piece that both bands sing together and is part of the show “Henrietta, the musical: a serenade to Costa Rica”, which will be a tribute to the most beautiful country in the world, which will be presented in the National Theater from September 25 and in which 25 actors and 12 musicians will participate.
Natalia Rodríguez Mata, executive director of the Espressivo Theater, explained that Henrietta is a scenic montage that includes a visual tour of spaces where much of our history is kept, such as the National Museum, the Costa Rican Art Museum, the José Figueres Ferrer Museum, the Cinema Center and José Figueres Ferrer Cultural and Historical Center.

As well as a national tour of the show during 2022, the production of a film that will result from the recording of the show, the collective reading of the book that inspires the work and the work with national bands ”, he commented.
