‘María de Buenos Aires’: Tango Operita by Astor Piazzolla
30 August 2016 - 3 September 2016, 7.30pm
(Not an ILAMS event, but one we highly recommend!)
‘I hope more people discover this extraordinarily creative little company…’ Fringe Opera
Natalie Katsou returns to Grimeborn to direct María De Buenos Aires, a unique species, the only tango opera (operita, as Astor Piazzolla preferred, no relation to operetta as there is no comedy or lightness in that sense) and poetry libretto by Horacio Ferrer. It involves tango, opera, dance, puppets and a narrator/actor. This rarely-performed fascinating piece will involve a cast of three singers, a quintet orchestra, an actor and a dancing couple. We will be collaborating with Deco Ensemble, the most exciting tango quintet in London, under the musical direction of Ricardo Gosalbo, performing an arrangement by Bob Barnes, with English adaptation by Denise Moreno and Natalie Katsou. Running time: 70 minutes. This production contains violence, scenes of a sexual nature and haze. Suitable for 12+.
Deco Ensemble | Catarina Sereno soprano | Ian Helm baritone | Bianca Vrcan & Sasha El Masry tango dancers | Matthew Wade actor | Béatrice de Larragoïti cover soprano
