Event

La Llorona/The Weeping Woman
An award-winning musical drama created by composer Héctor Armienta, La Llorona/The Weeping Woman is based on a folk legend renowned throughout México and the American Southwest. Opera Cultura will present three performances of this incredible production at the Mexican Heritage Theater - School of Arts and Culture in San Jose (June 28-30).

At its core, La Llorona is a story of revenge. Armienta's musical novella is set in México at the turn of the century. A young Xochil girl falls in love and marries a man of Spanish lineage, but the great Xochil River never forgives her for betraying her people. Twenty years later, her husband betrays her, she goes mad, and the river exacts its revenge by tormenting her until she sacrifices her only child. She will forever weep.

With text that is is primarily in English with Spanish interjections, the work transcends language, culture and age. Both Latino and non-Latino audiences, first-time theater goers and those familiar with opera, will be captivated by this powerful and breathtaking musical drama.

THREE PERFORMANCES:

Friday, June 28th at 7:30pm*  
Saturday, June 29th at 7:30pm
Sunday, June 30th at 2pm

*There will be an invite-only VIP Donor reception after the Opening Night performance (June 28th). Each individual who donates $50+ before June 1 will receive one invitation to the reception. Every donation will help Opera Cultura meet a $5,000 challenge grant awarded by the Castellano Family Foundation!
