Violetta's Last Tango 2017
This event has now ended…

Enter the world of tango diva Violetta, an ageing singer who lives out her dreams in the suburban milongas of Buenos Aires.

This fully staged evening of specially arranged popular opera, tango and musical numbers features opera singer Ann Liebeck in the title role. She is joined by  award winning tango dancers Dante and Miriam and West End performer and contemporary dancer Nuno Queimado. This captivating performance will also be enhanced by special projections by Viennese opera designer and artist Gilles Gubelmann.

Live music from virtuoso Cuban jazz violinist Omar Puente and his guest tango band, featuring star bandoneon player Julian Rowlands of Midnight Tango (Olivier award-nominated with Tango Siempre), accompanies the action on stage as Violetta wanders the streets and milongas in search of her long lost love.

The show has received enthusiastic reviews from audiences at Kings Place, Purcell Room QEH, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and at Artsdepot, Finchley.

The CD Violetta’s Last Tango produced by Julian Rowlands was launched at Pizza Express Jazz Club, Pheasantry in April 2016 and has received 5 star reviews on Amazon. New English performing translations have been specially written for this show.

Special tango tasters with Mina and Giraldo and Dante and Miriam will take place during April in Hoxton and at Wiltons on April 3rd, 10th and 24th.
