Notes and Editorial Reviews

Astor Piazzolla and the Uruguayan writer Horacio Ferrer first met in Buenos Aires in the 1950s – the idea for a musical homage developed from their mutual passion for tango. Ferrer wrote the libretto to María de Buenos Aires. When Astor Piazzolla set this “tango operíta” to music he typically ignored genre limitations and treated the surrealistic libretto to a kaleidoscope-like journey through theatre and music history. Piazzolla created a mixture of chamber opera, revue and oratorio and the various narrative forms and musical genres he used all circled round an energetic, pulsing heart – the tango. It is the story of this dance that is told in this “little opera”, inseparably linked with the city Buenos Aires – a story about stagnation, Read more demise and resurrection, personified by “María de Buenos Aires”.
