WEEP: Opera Cultura brings the enduring folktale of La Llorona to life.

Héctor Amienta and his award-winning Opera Cultura bring a Mexican legend to the stage with this live production of La Llorona. Translated as “The Weeping Woman,” La Llorona is a folk tale about identity, colonization and revenge. A young Xochil girl falls for a man of Spanish descent, marrying him and angring the mighty Xochil River. It’s part of Armienta’s Aguas Ancestrales—or “Ancient Waters”—trilogy, which deals with a number of themes, including the spiritual role of water, the concepts of destiny and free will, and the lives of the women in Armienta’s Mexican-American family.
