Maria De Buenos Aires – Brisbane Festival

24 August

Anthony will be performing with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra members as part of The Brisbane Festivals Maria de Buenos Aires performance….

Cherie Boogaart, star of Maria de Buenos Aires, has earned glowing reviews – not just because of her beauty and fantastic legs, which are mentioned often, but for dancing a ‘mean tango’.
This is no small feat considering she took her first tango lesson six weeks before the production opened, learned Spanish and immersed herself in Argentinean music to take on the role as the scintillating Maria – a Buenos Aires concubine who draws audiences into her world.

Astor Piazzolla’s ‘tango operita’ offers audiences one of the most fascinating heroines ever created. Sung in Spanish, it was first performed in Buenos Aires in 1968 and is often hailed as a surrealist masterpiece. More info go to:
