In the slums of Buenos Aires, there lived a girl named Maria. People say Maria was ‘born on a day when God was drunk…with a curse in her voice’. Travelling to the city she is seduced by an underworld moving to the passionate beat of the argentine tango. In a dangerous waterfront bar she becomes consumed by the fiery dance. Seedy characters plan her death, but her shadow returns to haunt the streets…
Anchorage Opera invites you to discover Maria de Buenos Aires, an intoxicating mix of opera, jazz and tango by the legendary Astor Piazzolla and poet Horacio Ferrer. The Sydney Laurence stage is transformed into a Buenos Aires tango bar filled with escorts, waiters, dancers and entertainers. The drama is real, the music is imperative, and your experience will be unforgettable.
This Alaskan premiere of Maria de Buenos Aires is proudly presented by Anchorage Opera in association with Anchorage Classical Ballet Academy and featuring local Tango club dancers.
