Music and dance go happily together in this danced concert around the oeuvre of Astor Piazzolla. With Libertango the Argentinian composers created one of his great masterpiece. It's a symbol for Piazzolla's break with traditional tango music and the freedom his Tango Nuevo carries within. This innovating style is now emblematic of the Argentinian master, with all its influences from jazz and classical traditions.
Tango, jazz, classical music…: all these elements and more inspired our British principal dancer Nancy Osbaldeston, who choreographed the music by Piazzolla . She, seven other dancers from the company and the musicians of the Ensemble Libertad breathe new live into the excuberant and deeply felt music of Piazzolla.
Libertango guarantees a sparkling evening of virtuosity, passion and a hint of melancholy.
