Tango Buenos Aires: Song of Eva Perón
Actress, First Lady, philanthropist, saint. Eva Perón—or “Evita”—was many things to many people, and even her 1952 passing couldn’t dim her legendary status around the world. This transformation into international icon began when she moved to Buenos Aires at age 15, so what better way to tell her story than with artists from Argentina’s capital?
In Song of Eva Perón, the internationally-acclaimed dancers of Tango Buenos Aires do just that, chronicling Perón’s life with their signature virtuosity and sensual commitment to the form. They follow her experiences from childhood poverty to adolescent fame to First Lady and political advocate, and finally, to the death mourned by a nation. Traditional Buenos Aires music underscores the spectacle, which coalesces as a celebration of tango and Argentinian culture.
The Egg Center for the Performing Arts
It doesn’t look like a venue where people gather for concerts and Broadway musicals. From far away, it hardly seems habitable at all. The Egg looks a sculpture—the kind museums guard behind velvet ropes—but inside the yolk, supported by a concrete-beam girdle and a stem that roots it six stories into the earth, deep into the mole-people's living rooms, lay two amphitheaters: the Lewis A. Swyer Theatre and the Kitty Carlisle Hart Theatre. Designed by the esteemed architectural firm Harrison and Abramovitz, whose other marvels include the Corning Museum of Glass, The Egg represents the completion of the Empire State Plaza project, which fulfilled Nelson Rockefeller’s dreams of turning skylines into sculptures.
