Orchestra - Ring
How was your experience?
A solid B performance. The costumes were lovely, the orchestra was wonderful. A few of the dancers were outstanding. The audience was very appreciative! I have more tango experience than most and have seen better, but they did do a wonderful job. As for the reviewer who complained about the Orchestra solos - people often forget that Argentine Tango is music AND dance. It is completely appropriate to showcase the music separately from the dance and I appreciated that they did. While Adios Nonino is wonderful to dance to, it is such a brilliant piece of music that it stands very well on its own as evidenced at this auspicious event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQLzOfOKI2U
