Born in 1850 during a time of intense political and emotional repression and turmoil in the Dominican Republic, Salomé wrote fervent patriotic poems that turned her into a national icon. 'In the Name of Salomé' is also the story of her daughter, Camila, who grew up in exile in the shadow of her mother’s legend. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles via Simultext® In-Seat Captioning System.
