[NUEVO TANGO OPERA] It’s old-home week for the city’s veteran new-music ensemble, as they bring back the “tango opera” Maria de Buenos Aires for the fourth time. Former Third Angle artistic director Jeffrey Peyton leads the band as the superb, smoky-voiced mezzo-soprano Milagro Vargas, a University of Oregon faculty member who earlier starred in operas by Philip Glass and many others, reprises the title role of a prostitute “born on a day God was drunk.” This performance of the great 20th-century Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla’s dark, melancholy 1968 classic—populated by ghosts, criminals, marionettes, psychoanalysts and more—also features Madrid-born tenor Pepe Raphael from the Bottle Blondes and Pink Martini), bandoneon master Coco Trevisonno and renowned Portland tango dancers Alex Krebs and Hannah Poston.
