About this Performance

More than 50 years after the first iteration of ¡FIESTA!, the Bob Baker Marionette Theater revitalizes its classic, jolly puppet show for a new generation of audiences. Featuring newly incorporated characters and cultures, ¡FIESTA! brings life to dancing cacti, colorful birds, and marimba maestros from Xochimilco in a never-before-seen Día de Muertos sequence. And the beloved marionette marching band serves a new look with outfits inspired by Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles, the world’s first LGBTQ+ mariachi band.

Starting May 14, get up to two free tickets for kids 12 and under with every full-priced ticket purchase!

Each LA Soundscapes family event features a pre-concert activity and participatory artmaking. Best for ages 3–11. These are daytime events and can get sunny. The Ford recently installed audience shade in the auditorium to help keep you cool, but don't forget your sunscreen and sun hats!
