María de Buenos Aires is the steamy story of María, the young prostitute who “was born on the day God was drunk.” As María falls in love with tango, she is pulled into a surreal world that blurs religion, dance and rebirth. Piazzolla’s nuevo tango score and Horacio Ferrer’s mesmerizing poetry create an ethereal realm in this immersive production to be performed at The Temple for Performing Arts.
