You’ll lose all sense of boundaries as you experience María de Buenos Aires, the famous tango-opera by Astor Piazzolla. Who is this woman of the night that wanders the streets without fear or reason? Is she a mother, a child, or a ghost? Saint or harlot? She is María, the most common name, and the name of the Most Exalted. She will not be confined by categorizations, she absorbs all assumptions. Join Opera Hispánica as it turns (le) poisson rouge into sultry Buenos Aires for two nights of tango, seduction and mystery!
