Back by popular demand, Piazzolla En Sus Palabras tells the story of Astor Piazzolla, Argentina’s illustrious musician and composer of the 20th century who revolutionized the music of Tango and created Tango Nuevo. Using Piazzolla’s own words, Parasol Arts’ Creative Director, Lorita Travaglia, created the script for actor Joey Wishnia who portrays an older Piazzolla reminiscing about his life, his music and his lovers. Piazzolla’s music is played live by the Austin Piazzolla Quintet and the characters of Piazzolla at different ages, as well as people in his life are all portrayed by professional Argentine Tango dancers from Parasol Arts, Natural Tango and the Colorado Ballet. Previous performances of Piazzolla En Sus Palabras have all sold out. [Organizer's description]
