Astor Piazzolla’s sultry and passionate nuevo tango fuels the surreal story of Maria, a prostitute born “one day when God was drunk.” An intimate production heightens the intensity of this allegorical drama of seduction, depravity, redemption and rebirth in Buenos Aires’ urban underbelly. The fourth installment in the company’s popular Ópera en Español series, this co-production with Atlanta Opera features soprano Catalina Cuervo, the world’s foremost interpreter of the title role. This production, conducted by Jorge Parodi and directed by Atlanta Opera General director Tomer Zvulun, has been praised by Opera News for its “undeniable authenticity.”
