We give you even more of the different with an inside look into our operas through this new initiative.
Our next Viewpoints give you an inside look into the world of Astor Piazzolla’s Maria De Buenos Aires. COT’s production evokes Argentina’s “Dirty War”, the period between 1976 and 1983 when the country was governed by military juntas that controlled the populace through state-sponsored terrorism. María represents the passion of the Argentine women who were as seductive as the tango while resilient and strong enough to overcome dictatorship.
