Gaucho: A New Musicalis set in 19th-century Argentina as 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.

But with some unexpected help, Mateo escapes to the alluring promises of Buenos Aires.
