Maria de Buenos Aires – Piazzola’s masterwork and a mirror to the soul of Buenos Aires.
The story goes that Piazzolla composed his only opera entirely on the bandoneón. This surrealist depiction of the titular Maria’s sleepwalk through violence, death, the afterlife, and rebirth effortlessly weaves classical contrapuntal techniques with milongas, cabarets, and mid-century jazz.
Come experience the compelling sounds of late-night tango culture and the thrilling dance through the underbelly of Buenos Aires. Anthony Barrese conducts.
