Nov. 9, 2006 – May 15, 2006, Deerfield Beach, FL– PTGTV is pleased to announce the selection of Rancho Los Labradores and the San Miguel Opera House in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, for its innovative, educational television series Pulse on America. The companies will be featured in a segment “World’s Best Second Home and Retirement Real Estate Investment Destinations.” The segment will air nationally on the Travel Channel in the U.S. and Canada, and regionally in conjunction with CNN Headline News.
Rancho Los Labradores is designed to be San Miguel de Allende’s most elegant and innovative private, gated neighborhood, with many outstanding elements. It is a different and unique concept that will feature three great ideas: an exclusive country club, a luxurious residential development supported by Stewart Title Guaranty Company and a convenient commercial area enriched by a very special cultural touch, a world-class Opera House. Being built in the State of Guanajuato, three hours north of Mexico City, almost in the geographic center of the country; all of this has been brought to reality by the Cházaro family, guided by Eric, Darío and Sergio Cházaro. RWR Productions, led by Susan Weiss and Bruce Rossley are responsible for building and managing the new San Miguel Opera House.
The country club will offer not only typical amenities such as a tennis court, solar heated roofed and unroofed swimming pool, gym and fitness area, spacious green areas but also activities focused on cultivating the spirit and developing the hidden talents of every individual. As an example, the following activities are some of what will be offered: painting classes, sculpture workshops, reading circles, cinema appreciation, yoga, tai chi, massage area, aroma therapy, batik painting, salsa and tango dance lessons among others.
With its typical Mexican cobblestone streets and wide “adoquín” sidewalks, Rancho Los Labradores re-creates an antique colonial space, while offering all of the advantages and comforts of the 21st century, such as a cyber-coffee house, veterinary office, video/DVD rentals, a small bookstore, and a movie house with an outdoor amphitheatre for live presentations, music concerts and recitals.
A new world-class Opera House will be constructed in San Miguel de Allende at Rancho Los Labradores. The developers of what will be the most state-of-the-art theater in Mexico are RWR Productions. The Opera House theatre will seat 800 patrons and the outdoor Opera Plaza Theatre will seat 1200 patrons. RWR Productions is working with the best acoustical, technical and theater design company in the country, Teletec, Mexico.
The architectural style of the San Miguel Opera House is “Mexican Contemporary” and will be funded by individual contributors from Mexico, the United States and Canada.
The San Miguel Opera House will be the permanent home to the National Concert Opera Company of Mexico, which is also headed by Weiss and Rossley. The National Concert Opera Company will showcase the excellent world-class operatic talent of Mexico as well as collaborate with United States and Canadian opera companies such as the Santa Fe Opera, Opera Boston, the Connecticut Concert Opera Company and the Canadian Opera Company.
