Never before has composer Astor Piazzolla and librettist-poet Horacio Ferrer’s sexy, tango opera, María de Buenos Aires, been presented by an opera company in North Texas – until now. Festival audiences will be invited to step onto the stage of Bass Performance Hall and into the intoxicating underworld of Buenos Aires, as a sultry, young woman named Maria finds herself seduced by the sounds and rhythm of tango.
Noches de Ópera Events
Each generation tells stories that capture the spirit of an era. Through art and expression we celebrate those narratives both old and new, as they give voice to the human experience. Our culture is enriched by its heritage and shaped by tradition, but the strength and vibrancy of our community lies within its diversity. The time has come to celebrate one another and tell new stories for a new generation. It is time for Noches de Ópera. A bold new initiative, Fort Worth Opera’s Noches de Ópera is a historic, four-year commitment to the exploration and production of contemporary Spanish–language operas, presented alongside an engaging line-up of community outreach programs. Through the powerful art of musical storytelling, Noches de Ópera strives to foster dialogue and inclusiveness, reach new audiences, and build stronger connections within the Latino community, while honoring the beauty of Fort Worth’s rich cultural mosaic.
