Tampa City Ballet presents, "If I Cry"


The opening project for the Fall of 2018 will be “If I Cry,” or “Si Te Lloro.” Based on the book “Hierba Santa” by Alexandra Scheiman, the company will focus on Frida Kahlo’s intense life, reflecting the Mexican artist’s deep mind and going through her extreme paths of pain, love, passions, and desires. The company will be able to captivate the audience through contemporary dance with more than just Kahlo’s story, taking them on a moving journey through her feelings, imagery, creativity, and more importantly, her mind, as “Hierba Santa” focuses primarily on telling her story through these points of view. With this project, Tampa City Ballet wishes to join the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with the community of Tampa and the support of the Ybor City Development Corporation, YCDC.

Performance Dates & Times:
