María de Buenos Aires
A tango-opera by Astor Piazzolla
Libretto by Horacio Ferrer
You’ll lose all sense of boundaries as you experience María de Buenos Aires, the famous tango-opera by Astor Piazzolla. Who is this woman of the night that wanders the streets without fear or reason? Is she a mother, a child, or a ghost? Saint or harlot? She is María, the most common name, and the name of the Most Exalted. She will not be confined by categorizations, she absorbs all assumptions. Join Opera Hispánica as it turns (le) poisson rouge into sultry Buenos Aires for two nights of tango, seduction and mystery!

Opera Hispánica presents “Maria de Buenos Aires”, A Tango-Opera by Astor Piazzolla
Opera Hispánica addresses the need for a New York City based opera company devoted to presenting the best of Hispanic opera.
As we begin to see increasing numbers of composers writing operas with Spanish and Latin American influence such as Daniel Catan, Robert Xavier Rodriguez, and Samuel Zyman Opera Hispánica is proud to support and cultivate the musicians, composers and writers who specialize in this genre.
Opera Hispánica focuses its mission on producing operas that are either in Spanish, written by a Hispanic or Latino composer, and/or inspired by a Hispanic theme or topic. In order for our mission to be accomplished one or more of these elements must be met.
As the ﬁrst opera company in New York City to perform predominantly in Spanish, Opera Hispánica’s repertory will also include Zarzuela (Spanish Musical Theatre) and related musical works both as concert and fully staged productions.
Opera Hispánica aims to establish a supportive foundation for emerging and established composers committed to developing new operas that are entertaining and relevant to modern audiences. Programs for emerging and established composers will include competitions, workshops, and the commissioning of new works.
