Arts and culture in brief: the week ahead in Costa Rica

March 18, 2016

Processions, services and special events to observe Holy Week will fill towns and cities across the country this week. One place to get into the spirit: the heart of San José, where the Central Market, which kicks off the week with live music (Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19 starting at noon), traditional cimarronas, mascaradas and face-painters (Saturday, March 19, throughout the day), and its popular fish fair (all week; closed on Holy Thursday and Good Friday). For more information call 8826-4090.

Set yourself up to burn off all those delicious seafood calories (and, let’s be honest, probably some chiverre honey as well) for a terrific cause: the Poas8 race challenges bikers to make it up Poas Volcano eight times; the race donates the full $50 inscription fee to house cancer patients who must travel to San José for treatment (Saturday, March 18).

When you get tangled up, tango on: The National Symphony Orchestra offers two tango performances at the National Theater with South American VIPs including Uruguayan conductor Gisele Ben-Dor and Argentinean bandoneon player Juan José Mosalini (Friday, March 18 and Sunday, March 20). 

The Nikolai Gogol satire “The Inspector” finishes its run at Teatro Espressivo in Curridabat (Friday, March 18 and Sunday, March 20).
