Gaucho: A New Musical by Aaron Ventresca

« All Events

December 8, 2023 • 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free and open to the public; advance tickets encouraged available through University Ticketing at tickets.princeton.edu

In this new musical set in 19th-century Argentina, the gaucho community of San Antonio de Areco faces growing threats to its traditional way of life from large landowners’ newest technology—barbed wire fencing. With horseback riding and storytelling buffeting under the pressure of progress, a young gaucho named Mateo struggles to break free from his family’s dying way of life to become a writer. But with some unexpected help, Mateo escapes to the unnamed promises of Buenos Aires. There, he meets Sofia, who shakes his provincial view of the world. As modernity takes shape, Mateo is torn between dichotomies: his family or the one he could create, his culture or the movements of the world, his duty or his dreams. Book, music and lyrics by Princeton senior Aaron Ventresca and Emma Ventresca, directed by alumnus and Lecturer in Theater Nico Krell.
Admission: Free and open to the public; advance tickets encouraged available through University Ticketing at tickets.princeton.edu.
