La Llorona, The Wailing Woman
Rosalía de Aragon

This famous ghost from Spanish folklore is known throughout the world for her eerie, spine-chilling cries as she searches for her loved ones. Her story was an ancient one in European mythology, but in New Mexico it is said she lived next door, or an ancestor actually knew her. La Llorona's cries are brought to life with the popular performance and songs of Rosalía de Aragon, a multi-talented native actor.

This is a family event for all ages.

This program is part of the New Mexico Humanities Council Chautauqua Program, which is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the N.M. Department of Cultural Affairs. Support also comes from the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library. The program is free and open to the public.
