TANGO! Tango! comes to Musselburgh’s Brunton Theatre next Wednesday, to uncover the passion and conflict that lie at the heart of one of the world’s most famous dances.
Tango! Tango! tells the story of Astor Piazzolla, an impassioned composer and outsider. Influenced by jazz and classical music, the ‘Great Astor’ fought, connived and survived for his music. After a long struggle against the establishment, he revolutionised tango, bringing it out of the underground clubs of Argentina and turning it into one of the most popular forms of music and dance of the late 20th century.
