Animo Productions brings Boleros de Noche to The Ford Theatres on Friday, July 6 at 7:30 p.m.
Featuring the last of the great romantic trios Los Tres Reyes and with a special performance by Grammy Award winner Rosalie Rodriguez, this romantic evening celebrates bolero music from Latin America. To date, this particular genre of music continues to enchant crowds all over the world, including here in Los Angeles.
“There is much love for the bolero and trios,” says Gilberto, known as Bebo and one of the founders of Los Tres Reyes in the late 1950s.
Bebo adds, “In particular Los Tres Reyes are fortunate enough in being recognized as the last of the great trios; we are the leading ensemble of boleros by a trio. The public always receives us with love and affection, and we still have the privilege of introducing ourselves throughout the continent of Latin America and Spain.”
Gilberto and Raúl Puente, twins, lead the way for Los Tres Reyes. And on this night, the audience will get to witness nonstop romantic ballads and boleros, eliciting the bohemian spirit of L.A..
And Los Tres Reyes, along with Rosalie Rodriguez, are sure to fill up this magical summer evening under the stars with nostalgia and love. After all, the City of Angels means lots to them.
“This city signifies a lot not only for it being a metropolis and the heart of entertainment, but also because of the large Latino community,” says Bebo. “Its diversity represents us all. We sing songs that come from different Latin American countries and L.A. allows us to gain closure from these ethnic backgrounds.”
Also, according to Bebo, the trio will render lots of classic tracks, as well as those from their most recent production with Abraham Quintanilla.
Regular tickets are $60, $50, and $40. For students with a valid ID, the cost is $44, while children pay $34 each.
