 VALENTINE’S DAY will have a special musical twist in Panama this year with renowned Panamanian Baritone Ricardo presenting “Stopping Time” a  medley of romantic ballads from the 1980’s. as the curtain raiser to  the  fifth Musicalion event at Parque Omar.

“It is an evening that seeks look at that moment of intimacy when  love is awakened. That magic moment in which a couple becomes one (…) presented  in a unique show to celebrate the day dedicated to love and friendship.” Says a Musicalion Press release.

So what are you waiting for?  Invite your Valentine to a free night out under the stars.

Velásquez will be accompanied by the  lyrical talent of the Spanish soprano and pianist Julia Cubo, and  the orchestra of Maestro Edmundo Archibold.
