Please join us on Tuesday, January 21,
for Te Amo, Argentina.
Rudder Theater, 8pm.
Te Amo, Argentina (formerly known as “Music from Argentina”) is a multi‐media performance inspired by the personal, musical, and artistic discoveries of cellist Antonio Lysy. It is a true homage to Argentina and its many art forms: the by‐products of indigenous and European cultures welded together in history’s fiery and passionate crucible. Projected artwork, custom animations, and tango dancers accompany the music, celebrating the diverse terrains and cultural groups that influenced the composers. Through recordings of Antonio Lysy’ own voice, the performance also tells the story of his musical and cultural identity.
