Next at the Kennedy Center: “Ballet Hispanico’s Doña Perón”

Friday, April 14 at 9 p.m.

For over 50 years, innovative New York–based Ballet Hispánico has been bringing communities together to celebrate and explore Latinx cultures through dance. Last seen at the Kennedy Center in 2013, Ballet Hispánico returns with internationally-renowned choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Doña Perón—her first evening-length work for the company.

Fresh from its world premiere to audiences in spring 2022, Doña Perón is an explosive portrait of Eva “Evita” Perón, one of the most captivating and controversial women in Argentinian history. Ochoa explores Evita’s diverging legacies in her invigorating new work set to live music by Peter Salem. Even as she rose up the ranks from dancehall performer to Argentina’s First Lady, Evita concealed a secret past. In her rags-to-riches life that ended suddenly at 33, was she a voice for the people or a deceitful actress?
