WATCH and be entertained by a musical that tells the story of one great genius of tango.

Tango, Tango is about impassioned composer and outsider, Astor Piazzolla, and transports the audience into the world of one of the most intimate of dances, the tango.

The show is coming to the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage, next Friday (March 7).

Patrick Lannigan plays Piazzolla in the show, and Tango Volcano, five musicians, and two dancers, bring the authentic sound of tango and intimacy to the performance.

This thriving underworld of dancers gyrates through the night in hidden clubs, and in the show they explode with colour and movement that is simply irresistible.

The 'Great Astor' revolutionised tango and turned it into one of the most popular forms of music and dance of the late twentieth century.

Influenced by jazz and classical music, Piazzolla fought, connived and survived for his music.

Tango, Tango is written by musician and author, Justin Pearson.

The musical starts at 7.45pm.

Tickets cost £16.50 and are available from the box office.
