Bordello is a musical composed by Emiliano Messiez with lyrics by Barbara Bellman.

A re-imagined story based on historical facts in 1920s Buenos Aires, where the wave of immigration from Eastern Europe, unemployment and crime upends polite Argentine society.

The culture undulates with Spanish, Italian, French and Yiddish, as Tango and Klezmer permeate the Argentine community. New ghettos house the dreamers and the schemers, and when they can’t find work in the factories, the more industrious make factories out of the women.

Thousands of Bordellos make an obscene amount of money for the traffickers and the establishment that turns a blind eye until a young poet, CESAR, and a Jewish prostitute, Raquel, ultimately bring the Zvi Migdal to trial.
