Tanguera tango show

Argentina's famous tango show, Tanguera, hits London this summer - read our review here and make sure you don't miss it!

An entire theatre to ourselves, we were two small figures in the first circle peering down at the lithe tango dancers as they limbered up, twirled across the stage and mingled with one another while waiting for their photo call to begin.

We had been invited to attend an exclusive event which would see us on stage with the leads as they danced an intense duet just metres from us, learn some tango steps during a private class with Luciano Capparelli and Rocío de los Santos – two of the stars of the show – and enjoy a Q&A with writer, director and producer Diego Romay. To top it all off we would attend opening night and see the show in its entirety.

Tanguera Tango Show at Sadler's Wells

Enjoying its second UK run, Tanguera transports you to the streets of sultry Buenos Aires at the turn of the century and tells the story of two star-crossed lovers: dockworker Lorenzo and young French immigrant Giselle. The tango is breathtaking, as you’d expect with Argentinean dance superstar Mora Godoy choreographing the show, and the dancers at the top of their game. It’s rare to see a tango show on this scale with a strong narrative throughout and it’s this that really sets Tanguera apart.

A unique show that is a must-see for any tango-lover, it’s a wonderful display of Argentina’s cultural heritage and we urge you to go along!

Tanguera runs from 19 July – 6 August at Sadler’s Wells Theatre and if you attend on a Tuesday and are a same-day ticket holder, you can even enjoy a free tango class after the show!
