About this show

Oh!Yantay, an Inca tale, was the first play known to be performed in the Americas, passed down orally from generation to generation. New York audiences will experience a rare treat in Walter Ventosilla's fresh new adaptation of this classic Inca tale. A combination of intense drama and comedic buffoonery, the play tells the story of Ollantay, a warrior who defies the Inca King by falling in love with his daughter, the Princess Cusi Coyllur. This betrayal sends the empire into a state of chaos. What ensues is a mythic tale of passion, rebellion, and ultimately forgiveness. Never before seen on the New York stage, a vivid and powerful portrayal of Inca culture comes to life with Walter Ventosilla's imaginative staging. The company of bilingual actors comes from all over Latin America providing a unique look into a magical time. Complete with masks, and live Andean music, Oh!Yantay is a rich and vibrant sensory experience.
