A new "Frida" ballet by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa in the Hong Kong Ballet 2024/25 season

12 June 2024

Colombian-Belgian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa (HKB's Coco Chanel) uses rich imagery from the iconic artist's bold paintings and deeply personal self-portraits to tell her multifaceted life story of triumph and tragedy.

This vibrant piece, which masterfully blends classical and modern elements, magnificently displays Ochoa's creative partnering as dancers tell a story of turbulent affairs, heartbreaking struggle, and intricate, uncompromising art.

The captivating characters in Frida's fantastical world, including her husband and renowned muralist Diego Rivera, are vibrantly brought to life against Peter Salem's entrancing original score, which features jazz, mariachi, and flamenco elements.

Concept, Libretto, Choreography: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa
Dramaturge And Libretto: Nancy Meckler
Music: Peter Salem
