‘A Soldier in Every Son’, Swan Theatre production on the Aztecs

Aztec Inspiration

We hear increasingly of exciting and innovative examples of artistic productions based on ‘Aztec’ themes - plays, crime thrillers, films, novels, art, music - around the world, and we feel it might be useful to highlight these in a new section of the Mexicolore website. Welcome to AZTEC INSPIRATION!

We launch the section with a review of A Soldier in Every Son at the Shaw Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon (July 2012)... Dave Price, sound and music director for the production, wrote to Mexicolore in advance of the opening ‘I found your fabulous website whilst researching Aztec music for a very exciting project which I’m currently working on... your website has already been immensely helpful to me and thank you for putting such useful information out there.’
