Dates and tickets

She loves with a fiery passion and she fiercely repels love. She lives off the power of tango and perishes in loneliness. She dances for her life and is deprived of her happiness. She plays with death and is resurrected – María from Buenos Aires. In his celebrated Tango Operita, Astor Piazolla, Argentinian composer and the father of Tango Nuevo, tells the story of sinister secrets of the tragic female figure who is character and spirit, flesh and apparition, all at once. With her infinitely sensual combination of tango and chanson, Latin and classical music, poetry and dance, joie de vivre and melancholia, she awakens our innermost feelings.
