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.

Thank you to our Performing Arts Season Sponsors Heritage Hotels and Resorts, the Albuquerque Journal and Southwest Airlines!

Film: Harvest of Loneliness: The Bracero Program

7 pm

This historical documentary, shedding light on the current debate over immigration reform and the use of “guest workers” in American agriculture, examines what was known as the Bracero Program—a system put in place from 1942 to 1964 to recruit Mexican farm laborers for temporary work in the United States. The film features testimony from surviving braceros as well as these workers’ family members and descendants, along with commentary from featured experts and extensive archival material. Anna Uremovich, archivist for the NHCC’s History and Literary Arts (HLA) program, will introduce the film and give an overview of HLA’s ongoing Braceros exhibition, featuring black-and-white photographs of these workers taken by the photojournalist collective known as the Hermanos Mayo, together with narratives, video, and artifacts that tell the story of the Bracero Program. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

2010; Gilbert G. Gonzalez, Vivian Price & Adrian Salinas; English; 58 minutes; not rated.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show
