With the interpretation of poems by the poet Rubén Darío, set to music and national themes, the Camilo Zapata ensemble of the Municipality, held a concert in honor of the 156th anniversary of the birth of the Father of Modernism.
The cultural event was held in front of Parque Candelaria, located in the Rubén Darío neighborhood, in District I of Managua.
This activity was attended by Vice Mayor Enrique Armas Rosales, who explained that it is part of the cultural agenda that the Managua Mayor's Office has organized during the Dariana Day, which is celebrated throughout the country.
"We are in front of the Candelaria park, one of the most popular in old Managua, sharing with residents of the area a beautiful presentation by the Camilo Zapata ensemble, to pay homage to the Prince of Castilian Letters, for two weeks we will continue taking the parks, cultural and artistic activities to neighborhoods to celebrate our poet,” said Armas.
Clemente Guido, Director of Historical Heritage of the commune, stated that Rubén Darío visited the shores of Lake Managua, near where the concert was held in Parque Candelaria.
“Dario fell in love on these shores, he fell in love twice here on the shores of Lake Managua: The first time he fell in love with a circus artist, a circus came, he saw a swinger and fell in love with her and dedicated a poem and was captivated by the circus that left, he fell in love with her; That was Dario, later he fell in love again with "La Garza Morena", who was his already formal love, her name was Rosario Murillo. He fell in love so much that she was his legal wife later, that also happened in Managua, let's remember that Darío lived and worked here before going abroad," Guido shared.
