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

April 29, 2016
Celebrate International Jazz Day at El Sótano in Barrio Amón, which for the fourth year running will celebrate the big day with a star-studded lineup headlined by New York-based pianist Theo Hill in a trio rounded out by Max Esquivel (Costa Rica) and Sotiris Ntouvas (Greece), as well as Dr. Soul, Olé Jazz and more. The official UNESCO Jazz Day concert at the White House in Washington will also be screened as part of the celebrations (Saturday, April 30).

Frankenstein takes San José: an innovative staging of Mary Shelley’s classic tale will take place at the National Theater, focusing on the psychological and physical violence the character suffers (Friday, April 29).

Feel like catching a show, but not buying tickets or making arrangements? Sometimes it’s as easy as walking down the street: check out the National Dance Company’s al fresco performance on Avenida Central, next to the clock by the Plaza de la Cultural, today at 11 a.m. (Friday, April 29).
