Fort Worth Opera Festival presents María de Buenos Aires
Never before has composer Astor Piazzolla and librettist-poet Horacio Ferrer’s sexy, tango opera, María de Buenos Aires, been presented by an opera company in North Texas, until now. Festival audiences will be invited to step onto the stage into the intoxicating underworld of Buenos Aires, as a sultry, young woman named Maria finds herself seduced by the sounds and rhythm of tango.
Set in a surrealistic red light district and hell itself, this sizzling, immersive production places audiences only inches away from the red-hot, steamy action. Stage director, choreographer, and librettist John de los Santos returns to Fort Worth Opera to bring his singular vision of María to life.
