Tango Viva by Lorena Goldestein & Cristian Gallardo
Having performed in more than 50 countries and for dignitaries such as Barack Obama and the G-20 summit, this thrilling dance troupe from Buenos Aires has earned cultural recognition from the Ministry of Culture of Argentina.
Artistic directors, choreographers and lead dancers Lorena Goldestein & Cristian Gallardo held the same positions at the prestigious El Viejo Almacen, one of the oldest traditional dance theaters in Buenos Aires. At the invitation of the Argentinean government, the pair has given masterclasses to hundreds of professional dancers at the World Tango Championships.
While this show mainly features traditional tango music, the group mixes things up to surprising effect with pieces like Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and the Queen’s Love of My Life. The arrangements were done by the same highly lauded Argentinian musician behind the soundtrack of Evita starring Madonna.
