Marisela and Alvaro Torres

  • When Marisela began her career: in 1984, at the age of 15, when she recorded her first album
  • Where fans first met her: on the popular Mexican TV show Siempre en Domingo
  • Spanish broadcasting shows that spread her talents to the States: Cristina, Don Francisco, Sábado Gigante
  • Her sound: romantic ballads and uptempo dance numbers that draw on traditional Latin folk influences and modern pop
  • When Alvaro Torres began dreaming of stardom: as a child in El Salvador, listening to pop acts such as Sandro and Camilo Sesto on the radio
  • His first big break: in 1976, when he moved to Guatemala and released his debut album Algo Especial
  • What brought him to the United States: a yearning for more fame, which he got in 1991 with the release of the chart-topping Nada Se Compara Contigo and teamed up with Marisela for the first time on the track “Mi amor por ti”
  • His sound: sentimental and swoon-worthy, with bubbly pop beats tempered with a slightly melancholy traditional influence

Arena Theatre

At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
