POWDER HER FACE to Play at Teatro Colón
The Thomas Ades' two act opera, Powder Her Face, will play at Teatro Colón Dec. 13-18.
The opera premiered in London 1995 on the decline of a controversial character of the English aristocracy: Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, whose sexual exploits were cause for scandal in 1963 during their divorce process. A ruthless criticism of the frivolity and snobbery of the spectacle society, which at the same time rescues a fragile creature that bravely faced the prejudices of the time.
