Synopsis

This Argentina-inspired musical sets its first act in a 1930s brothel, where two brothers dance a violent tango with a new virgin. The second act re-sets the Orpheus myth during the country's brutal junta political regime in the 1970s, where Orpheus is a rock singer who follows his beloved to a hell guarded by fascists.
