“Fast and furious, the dancers’ feet and legs flashed and wove in and around each other, or paused to move slowly and seductively, stretching the tension within the dance.” Lincoln Journal Star
In a captivating new performance, Tango Buenos Aires shares the story of one of Argentina’s most important and compelling historical figures, Eva Perón. This masterful ensemble of dancers, singers, and musicians use the art of tango to tell the bigger-than-life story of Evita: her dizzying ascent from an impoverished childhood in the slums to a successful career in radio and film, culminating in her time as the celebrated First Lady of Argentina. Tango Buenos Aires, one of Argentina’s greatest cultural exports, is celebrated for its impeccable technique, dramatic flourish, unbridled passion, and above all, authentic interpretations of the tango.
