Starring Argentinian tango stars German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi, Tango Fire returns to tour the UK from February 12 to March 2, 2020. Accompanied by the Tango Fuego Quartet, playing live music on stage from Argentina’s most famous composers, including Astor Piazzolla, Osvaldo Pugliese and Carlos Gardel, this is a sizzling show with six top tango couples demonstrating their individual styles and mercurial footwork.

The six pairs include Cornejo and Galeassi, Sebastian Alvarez and Victoria Saudelli, Marcos Roberts and Louise Junqueira Malucelli, Ezequiel Lopez and Camila Alegre, Julio Seffino and Carla Dominguez, and Esteban Simon and Marilu Leopardi. Tango Fire’s choreography and wardrobe design are by German Cornejo, with lighting design by Nick Jemicz. To book tickets, go to tango-fire.com.
