The show was okay but I wasn't really impressed. I was a bit bored that I left early. However the music was good. The dances didn't have too much choreography. It was the same thing scene after scene. I'll just say I was there to support the company.

Description

Noche de Tango 2011 (Tango Night 2011) is an exciting show featuring the leading and internationally-acclaimed tango singers Carlos Bosio and Esther Segovia, with a live 5-piece tango orchestra conducted by Maestro Dino Durand and the Buenos Aires Dance Company, bringing their sensual, fiery and passionate tango choreographies to the Alex Theatre stage. The orchestra will feature the traditional ‘bandoneon,’ piano, guitar, acoustic bass and violin. The program includes traditional and modern pieces of the Argentine Tango repertoire.

Noche de Tango 2011 brings the legendary and sensual tango to life through music, song and dance as never seen before in the USA. The show covers tango’s humble beginnings in the slums and bars of Buenos Aires, revisiting the “Golden Era” of Carlos Gardel, Anibal Troilo and the Orquesta Típica de D’arienzo, and arriving to the contemporary movements of Astor Piazzolla and others, all along following tango to the lofty position it enjoys today as an international icon.
