Colour, joy, and Mexican festivity are the main components of Mariachi Tempo. In this contemporary ballet choreography Diego Vázquez makes use of four famous Mariachi pieces to represent four moments of a typical Mexican celebration: from the great opening with fireworks at the crack of dawn, to the traditional serenade under the moonlight.

The scenes of Mariachi Tempo are: The Rattle, Son de la Negra, The Cockfight and the Serenade.
