April 28-29, 2023

A renowned cultural treasure, Ballet Hispánico boasts over 50 years of innovative artistry that brings communities together to celebrate Latinx cultures through dance. Fresh from its world premiere, Doña Perón is an explosive portrait of Eva “Evita” Perón, one of the most captivating and controversial women in Argentinian history. Even as she rose from dancehall performer to Argentina’s First Lady, Evita’s advocacy for women and the working class raised skepticism as she indulged in the opulence of a high-class life. Was she a voice for the people or a deceitful actress? Internationally renowned Latina choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa explores these diverging legacies in this seminal full-length work for Ballet Hispánico.
