This renowned company uses the art of tango to journey through the life of Argentina's larger-than-life former First Lady, Eva Perón. From her impoverished childhood in the slums to her position as one of the country's most powerful and influential figures, Perón's story is told in this riveting new performance by these celebrated dancers, singers, and instrumentalists. Tango Buenos Aires, one of Argentina's greatest cultural exports, is recognized worldwide for its authentic interpretations of this captivating dance. Tango originated in dance halls and brothels during the late 19th century, and soon captured the attention of European high society, establishing its reputation as one of the world's most seductive and passionate dances. "Swirling, fast-paced tapestries of movement, laced with proud postures and sensual couplings." (The Washington Post)
