Vincent and Flavia star in new tango show

Posted on October 7, 2010

“Strictly” stars Vincent and Flavia will create and star in a new stage show, Midnight Tango. Presented by Arlene Phillips and Adam Spiegel, the show will make a 13-week tour of the UK from April 2011.

 Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace will be joined by ten tango dancers for a show set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires. “Vincent and I have been performing since a very young age, all over the world and in ballrooms all around the United Kingdom,” says Flavia. “We have had only a small taster of performing on a stage this year and it was a thrilling experience. The fact that we can finally tour with our own Argentine tango show is so exciting, it’s difficult to put into words how we feel. We hope that, as always, we will have amazing support all round the British Isles and we hope to bring a little passion into people’s lives.”

Producer Arlene Phillips said, “Watching Vincent and Flavia performing their Argentine tango, I feel, is as thrilling as dance gets. They have thrilled audiences on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, and their new theatre show is a great opportunity for people up and down the country to see them live and feel the excitement.”

The tour opens at the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton on April 6, 2011. See www.MidnightTango.co.uk for more dates and information.
