Longy School of Music presents an imaginative and unusual double bill of De Falla’s fiery ballet suite El Amor Brujo and Piazzolla’s surrealist tango opera, Maria de Buenos Aires.
This production, directed by Christopher Sierra and conducted by Ryan Turner, examines how the most vulnerable women in society face and deal with adversity.
This rare double bill explores unexpected parallels between the two pieces, including themes of light versus darkness, stepping into one’s power, surrendering to fate, and how one’s spiritual and religious identity can be challenged by trials and tribulations.
