Maria de Buenos Aires- Arcola Theatre – 24 Ashwin Street, E8 3DL London, United Kingdom

at 19.30 (20.30 on 3rd September)

Well, like buses one waits for ages then two come along.  Only a few months after the Oskar McCarthy’s production of  Astor Piazzolla’s opera at the Waterloo Vaults, the Arcola Theatre launch their production on the 30th of August.  This time the music will be provided by London’s own Deco Ensemble with Bartel Glowacki on accordion.

Maria was seduced by the tango. Now she is the most bewitching dancer in Buenos Aires, and the talk of its red light district. But when the languishing Piazzolla is driven mad by her ‘fatal passion’, he conspires to stop it dead. Maria is made of flesh and blood, but her spirit will to be harder to kill…

Astor Piazzolla’s 90-minute ‘operita’ is a unique masterpiece about passion, lust and the supernatural. Set against the backdrop of a teeming city, and to the sound of milongas, tangos and waltzes, Maria de Buenos Aires binds the slang of brothels to the poetry of angels.

Natalie Katsou (The Medium, Wolf Kisses) returns to Grimeborn to direct this vibrant new production from Operaview, renowned for their merging of opera with dance and visual arts. The light and shade of Piazzolla’s score is brought to life by the Deco Ensemble, one of the UK’s finest tango quintets.
