Audience favorite Ballet Hispánico launches their national tour with a return to New Orleans and marks their 50th anniversary with the debut performance of Doña Perón: The Rise and Fall of a Diva, a brand new, full-length ballet celebrating one of the most captivating women of South American history. New Orleans audiences will be the very first to experience this dynamic production choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, the internationally-renowned maker of the Scottish Ballet’s A Streetcar Named Desire. Doña Perón is an explosive portrait of Eva \"Evita\" Perón whose ambition and conflicting desires fed her life as an activist and feminist leader. Ochoa, in collaboration with Nancy Meckler, explores the extremes of power at the forefront of Evita\'s life as she ascended the ranks of Argentinian society while concealing a shameful past within a poor family. This invigorating new work, set to live music by Peter Salem, will hint at notes of Tango, reinforcing the intensity of Evita\'s diverging legacies. “Ballet Hispánico is an example of what makes our country beautiful,” shouts Broadway World. \ \ Tickets available soon.
