Tanguera @ Sadler’s Wells August 2010

After performing to sell-out audiences and gathering rave reviews across the globe, Argentina’s smash-hit tango musical Tanguera comes to Sadler’s Wells for a strictly limited run.

Boasting a company of over 50 dancers and musicians, Tanguera tells a story of unrequited love in early 20th century Buenos Aires.

When Giselle, a young French woman, arrives in Argentina as one of the first waves of European immigrants, she meets Lorenzo, a port worker who falls in love with her at first sight. But as Giselle falls deeper into Buenos Aires’ seedy under- world, Lorenzo must fight to win her love.

This is an adrenaline-charged journey through the world of tango with award-winning choreography by renowned Argentinean dance star Mora Godoy, and a seductive score performed by a full orchestra with one of Argentina’s most celebrated tango singers Marianela live on stage.

A huge success in its native Buenos Aires, where it ran for 18 months, this spellbinding new show has dazzled audiences in New York, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Tokyo. London audiences will be swept up in the drama of the Tanguera as it makes its UK premiere this summer.
