Los Millonarios

Time: Feb. 12, 2018, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Location: Schine Underground Theater

Part of the Syracuse Symposium

Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.

Chilean Theater group Teatro La María performs the play Los Millonarios (The Millionaires) in Spanish with English subtitles.


Inspired by an actual event in rural Chile, the play constructs a frame which highlights racism toward indigenous peoples in Chile, but also raises questions about the increasing violence toward and marginalization of the middle class throughout the world as increasing numbers of millionaires rise to political power in many countries.  The play has been performed several times in Chile as well as in Peru and Portugal.  This public performance in Syracuse will be its U.S. debut. 

While touring central New York, Teatro La María plans to perform Los millonarios a second time at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and El Hotel, at SUNY Oswego

This free, public performance is a presentation of this semester's Syracuse Symposium course, [SPA 400] Women, the Arts, and Social Change in Latin America.
