NBDT's collaboration with the Long Beach Opera - Maria de Buenos Aires
As described on the Long Beach Opera website, Maria de Buenos Aires is an “...opera of “stunning originality,” [that] pluses to the passion and beat of Piazzolla’s revolutionary nuevo tango and Horacio Ferrer’s mesmerizing, imaginative poetry. Maria embodies everything that is the Argentinian people. Totally consumed by passion yet fiercely maintaining her independence, Maria fights for survival and freedom, never surrendering. “I dream a dream that nobody ever dreamed. Maria noche, Maria passion fatal! Maria del amor!” Piazzolla’s tango music for this story is irresistible, incisive, electrifying, provocative and moving.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us in this production of Maria de Buenos Aires. We would also like to thank the Long Beach Opera for this opportunity to collaborate and create this world for Maria, a world which we were able to bring to life, because of the visions and many talents of everyone who came together and believed in it.
