The harpsichord was made in Mexico in 1978 by Martin Seidell. It was first played that year by Colombian harpsichordist Rafael Puyana during a concert.

The instrument will once again play at 5:10pm Thursday at the hands of the Costa Rican artist, that will include music from composers Antonio de Cabezón (1510-1566), William Byrd (1542-1623), Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583- 1643), Johann Jakob Froberger (1616 -1667), Louis Marchand (1669-1732) and Antonio Soler (1729-1783).

Tickets for the activity are ¢4.500 for general admission and ¢2.500 for students and seniors with their “Ciudadanos de Oro” card and can be obtained at the theater box office, online at or by calling 2010-1142 or 2010-1143.
