We take a tango with Maestro Jorge Parodi and the Opera Grand Rapids production of "Maria de Buenos Aires."

As the saying goes, it takes two to tango, but this weekend in Grand Rapids, it takes an entire opera company.

Current State’s Jamie Paisley met with Maestro Jorge Parodi ahead of this weekend’s performances of the tango-filled opera "Maria de Buenos Aires." It’s an opera which has a bit of a twist worthy of filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan.
