Ballet Hispánico

Ballet Hispánico, the nation's largest Latinx cultural organization and one of America's Cultural Treasures, will perform Eduardo Vilaro's Buscando a Juan as part of the Summer 2023 MetLiveArts Season from July 13-15, 2023 at The Robert Lehman Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The program is free with Museum admission. For more information, click here.

In his newest work, Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director and CEO Eduardo Vilaro is inspired by the exhibition Juan de Pareja, Afro-Hispanic Painter. The MetLiveArts commission, which features dancers from Ballet Hispánico, explores sancocho, or a mixed soup of cultures and diasporas, and will consider the assumptions experienced when witnessing people of color in white spaces in relation to the exoticized body and fixation on gestures and sensuality.


Open rehearsals: July 10 and 11, 3 p.m.–5 p.m.

Performances: July 13 at 1 and 3 p.m., July 14 and 15, at 6 and 8 p.m.

Venue: The Robert Lehman Wing, court level at The Met Fifth Avenue
