Ordway Auditorium

Storyteller and solo performer, Antonio Sacre bridges two cultures with humor and stories. He creates a truly bilingual experience, drawing from an extensive repertoire of folk tales, myths and legends from around the world, focusing on Spanish-speaking countries, especially Mexico. It doesn’t matter whether you speak English, Spanish or both, Sacre’s storytelling artfully interweaves both languages.
