Opera Southwest Presents Astor Piazzolla’s María de Buenos Aires

February 17February 24
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

February 17, 20, 22 & 24, 2019
2 pm — Sundays
7:30 pm—Wednesday & Friday

Opera Southwest presents Astor Piazzolla’s María de Buenos Aires, a fully-staged opera with orchestra, sung in Spanish with both English and Spanish translation supertitles, and presented in two acts with one intermission.

OSW is thrilled to present Piazzolla’s only opera in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The story goes that his surrealist depiction of the titular Maria’s sleepwalk through violence, death, the afterlife, and rebirth was composed entirely on the bandoneón. The opera effortlessly weaves classical contrapuntal techniques together with milongas, cabarets, and mid-century jazz for a thrilling dance through the underbelly of Buenos Aires. Anthony Barrese conducts.
$15, $29, $45, $59, $75, $89; discounts for groups of ten or more, patrons 30 and younger, and those who attend all three “Inside Opera” workshops between Jan. 23 and Feb. 5, 2019.

Among the guidelines that the Performing Arts program has developed, refined, and utilized since 1999 to design its programming and curate its seasons is the provision of a variety of annual programming that is specific to seasons, holidays, and celebrations, as well as culture-specific. Carnaval was first celebrated at the NHCC in 2002, and has been part of the Center’s regular seasonal programming since 2006, with regular performances by presenting partners Frank Leto & PANdemonium and Pilar Leto & the Odara Dance Ensemble. This year’s Carnaval 2019 marks the 14th annual Carnaval Celebration at the NHCC’s Roy E. Disney Center for Performing Arts.

Revolutions International Theatre Festival: Migrant Songs

March 28March 29
7:30 pm 

Migrant Songs is a choral piece based on stories of migration, both human and non-human. Specifically, the project explores the relationship between the songs of human and bird migration, through oral interviews gathering stories and songs from migrants who currently live in the Albuquerque area and research and field recordings of birds in northern New Mexico, and bringing the songs of migrants into inter-species dialogue through the creation of a choir performance. The work highlights the stories and songs that cut across different migration histories, tying Hispanic culture in historic and contemporary relationships to Asian, African, and Middle Eastern culture within the New Mexican context.
