Direct from Argentina Great Performances at Vanderbilt Hosts Tango Buenos Aires
Nashville, TN – Thursday, March 17 at 7:30pm Great Performances at Vanderbilt brings Tango Buenos Aires’ “Fire and Passion” to Vanderbilt’s Langford Auditorium.
Tango Buenos Aires has become one of Argentina’s great cultural exports, known throughout the Americas, Europe, and the Far East as the most authentic and uncompromising representative of the Tango. Tango Buenos Aires was created for the “Jazmines” festival at the famous Buenos Aires cabaret “Michelangelo” by renowned composer and tango director Osvaldo Requena. The company met with tremendous success and was immediately added to the season of the General San Martin Municipal Theatre and has since toured internationally.
“Sometimes playful, sometimes dramatic, and always sensuous, the closely entwined bodies and limbs moved with amazing speed through deftly engineered movements, including frequent dips, deep slides, energetic foot stomps and ballet-like turns.” —Ruidoso News
