At its core, the Hispanic American Foundation’s vision is to educate, inspire and celebrate Hispanic culture and American Latinos’ lived experience. Hispanic influences are all around us, in the histories, language, arts, music, food, architecture, families, and businesses in Tulsa. Here are a few ways to celebrate Tulsa’s Hispanic culture this fall.
Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Vendetta, a Mafia Story
This October, Colombian-born and Belgian-trained international choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa brings her original work, Vendetta, a Mafia Story, to Tulsa. Originally staged for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal in 2018, the ballet crosses Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet with Hollywood’s The Godfather.
Originally set for spring, this performance has been rescheduled for October 29 to November 1, 2020 at Tulsa’s Performing Arts Center. For more information or tickets, click here.
