Library -- La Llorona

Saturday, September 7, 2019

Rosalia de Aragon as La Llorona. Many say they have heard the unforgettable, spine chilling cry of La Llorona, the Wailing Woman, as she wanders searching for her children. Many also can say that they have met her through actor/singer Rosalia de Aragon, who has portrayed La Llorona for ten years. De Aragon keeps the story alive as a Chautauqua performer sponsored through the New Mexico Humanities Council. She has traveled throughout the state and has portrayed La Llorona over 100 times at museums, fiestas, schools, and event in almost every community in New Mexico. De Aragon is currently touring her new Chautauqua performance of famed dancer “La Argentinita” around the state. As a vocalist, she has also recorded a CD entitled Canto de La Llorona. De Aragon recently published a book titled “La Llorona.” Rosalia’s daughter, Rosalinda Pacheco, illustrated the book. This program is presented by the New Mexico Humanities Council. This event is free and open to the public, ages 12 and up.
