“The exciting piece here is authenticity,” explains Kimmel Center president and CEO Anne Ewers.

She says this production truly reflects modern day Argentina.

“What’s so thrilling about this production is to see something that its creators have gone back to their work of 30 plus years ago — they’ve re-envisioned it, they’ve found a way to make it relevant for today.”

And she says the music will captivate you every time.

“You never ever get tired of these songs.”
