NEW PERFORMANCE OF TANGO OPERETA MARIA DE BUENOS AIRES
After the successful premiere of the tango operetta Maria de Buenos Aires, produced by the Tanguango Quintet, premiered on the stage of the Duško Radović Small Theater in December last year, the audience will have the opportunity to see a rerun of this spectacle on February 11th in the Great Hall of the Student City Cultural Center at 20.00 hours.
The tango operetta Maria de Buenos Aires, premiered in 1968 in Buenos Aires, is the first collaboration between two great artists, Astor Piazzolla – Argentine composer, founder of tango nuevo style and Oras Ferrer – Uruguayan-Argentine poet.
The plot of this operetta follows the birth, life and death of the main character Maria, a poor girl from the suburbs of Buenos Aires who is blinded by tango music, goes downtown and becomes a prostitute, as well as her transformation into her own shadow wandering the city streets. In addition to Maria, who symbolizes the city, tango and seductive woman, there are numerous characters typical of the tango tradition – Pajador, Bandoneon, Gorrion, as well as distant, fantastic ones that almost never appear in tango lyrics – Elf, Analysts, Puppets, etc.
The main roles will be played by Ljubica Damčević, Ivan Nikolić, Giacomo Medici, musicians Dušica Luković, Sonja Lukić, Jelena Adamović, Ana Miljojković, Zoran Anić, Anastasia Redžić and Arion Petrovski.
The choreography of Ognjen Vučinić (assistant Katarina Ilijašević) will feature tango dance couple Relja Dereta and Jelena Minić and contemporary players Miona Petrović and Ognjen Vučinić.
You can reserve tickets on time through www.tickets.rs and DKSG porters, noting that the number of seats is limited.
The project was supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information in cooperation with the Student City Cultural Center.
