The Last Tango: Vincent and Flavia in their final ever tour

Posted on April 24, 2015

vincent-and-flavia---the-last-tango---uk-tour-opening-september-2015Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace are preparing to dance in their final ever theatre show, which they promise will be their most moving production yet. The Last Tango opens in September 2015 ahead of a 33-week theatre tour.

Twenty years of dancing together has seen Vincent and Flavia become Strictly Come Dancing favourites, World Argentine Tango champions, and create and star in their own Olivier Award-nominated West End productions – Midnight Tango and Dance ‘Til Dawn –but now, as the nation’s favourite dancers prepare to take on new projects, it is time for Vincent and Flavia to say goodbye to audiences across the UK in a brand new, thrilling live performance.

Flavia says: “We have had such a fantastic time creating and dancing in Midnight Tango and Dance ‘Til Dawn. It’s an incredible experience to perform live in front of our wonderful audience night after night, but all good things must come to an end, so we’re creating our final ever theatre show. It’s going to be intimate, intense and full of our award-winning Argentine tango. The Last Tango is going to showcase our best work and most beautiful dance moves before we finally say farewell to theatre.”

Vincent adds: “The last few years have been amazing – we’ve loved it. It may be our final theatre tour but we’re going to go out with a bang! This is going to be our best show yet!”

The Last Tango is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce and produced by Adam Spiegel Productions (The Producers, Dance ‘Til Dawn, Midnight Tango and Love Me Tender).

The tour will open on September 17 in Aylesbury Waterside and close on July 16 at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. Tickets will be on sale soon.
