¡Noche Latina!

May 9-13, 2012

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

"¡Noche Latina! was a high energy fiesta... you knew this wasn't going to be an ordinary night in the theater"~The Washington Post

The Washington Ballet closes its 2011.12 season with "¡Noche Latina!", an all-NEW mixed repertory program celebrating Latin music and dance. The three movement program includes the world premieres of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's "Sueno de Marmol" and Edwaard Liang's "La Ofrenda (The Offering)", and the company premiere of Trey McIntyre's" Like a Samba", May 9-13 at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Eisenhower Theater. Latina diva, Totó la Momposina, and band will perform live during the first intermission of every performance. Internationally renowned Spanish painter and sculptor, Cristóbal Gabarrón, will create the scenic elements and masks for Edwaard Liang's new ballet which is based on the "Day of the Dead." The set sculptures will later be sold to raise money to support the Company's Latino dancers and outreach programs.
