“Doña Perón” is not just a ballet; it’s a powerful portrayal of Eva “Evita” Perón, one of Argentina’s most iconic and controversial first ladies. Choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, with music by Peter Salem and stunning designs by Mark Eric and Christopher Ash, this performance is a must-see.
Explore the extremes of power in Evita’s life story – from her humble beginnings as a dancehall girl to becoming a prominent political figure. Was she a true advocate for Argentina’s working class, or was she living a life of opulence and deceit?
Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, known for her work on Alberta Ballet’s “BOTERO” from the 2022-23 season, beautifully infuses ballet with tango in this stunning contemporary work. Her goal is to give female dancers real, complex roles on stage.
Jubilee Doors Open:
Arrive early! The Jubilee doors will open 60 minutes before the performance, allowing you to soak in the atmosphere and excitement of the evening.
Performed by the New York-based Ballet Hispánico with live music, “Doña Perón” has been captivating audiences across North America since its 2022 premiere.
Join us on September 14th for a night that promises to leave you spellbound and celebrate the arts, culture, and the incredible talent of Ballet Hispánico. We can’t wait to see you there!
