Piazzolla’s Maria de Buenos Aires at Le Poisson Rouge

Tonight at the Graduate Center, we are hosting Maria Susana Azzi, co-author of the definitive biography of Astor Piazzolla. The book was recently reissued as an expanded anniversary edition. Azzi will present some of her new findings, along with a special performance of Piazzolla works, arranged for guitar and flute.

If tonight’s event leaves you craving more Piazzolla, you’re in luck! The New York City Opera opened a rare, limited production of Piazzolla’s opera Maria de Buenos Aires on October 22.  They will have two more performances, on October 26 and November 2, at Le Poisson Rouge.  Enjoy this chance to experience nuevo tango in an intimate cabaret space!

Standing room tickets are available for only $10.
