A LEGEND COMES TO LIFE

Embark on an unforgettable musical journey as the chilling and beloved tale of La Llorona is masterfully brought to life by Ópera Cultura on June 22 and 23, 2024 in San José. The spectral weaver of nightmares and culture, La Llorona/The Weeping Woman, is an eternal presence in the folklore of Mexico, reverberating her sorrowful tale through the generations. 

La Llorona/The Weeping Woman unfolds the tragic origins of this ghostly figure against the backdrop of Mexico in the early 20th century. María, a young indigenous Xochil, falls in love with a Spanish gentleman, triggering a series of events that lead inexorably to madness, betrayal and a fatal encounter with the relentless Xochil River. The river, a character in its own right, becomes the catalyst for unspeakable tragedy, culminating in the heart-rending sacrifice of her child, Sara, and cementing La Llorona's eternal lament.

But act swiftly – the river waits for no one.
