Review: Tango Moderno

Tango Moderno, the irresistible stage spectacular from tango superstars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, is at Milton Keynes Theatre until Saturday 18th November. This week starring dancers, Pasquale La Rocca and Leonel Di Cocco in place of Vincent as he has sustained a back injury. Don’t worry, he is Ok and will back on stage as soon as he has recovered!

Put the music on and dance before you die! A line from the show and echoes the age old saying ‘life’s too short’. If you’ve always wished you could dance, maybe now’s the time to take inspiration and start a new hobby? Singing, Dancing, acting, playing an instrument – you could be inspired to take on any of these after watching Tango Monderno. As Flavia and Co dance their magic across the stage, illuminating their peers into their own dances and living their dreams.

A modern fusion of traditional Argentinian Tango, ballroom and Latin with street dance. An excellent performance from all the dancers with each routine exquisitely performed and I loved how the routines and songs showcased each situation and how each scene merged perfectly from one to the next. Narrated by Tom Parsons, a fantastic guitarist and talented singer, told us the story both poetically and through song. Supporting Tom, Rebecca Lisewski jumps from energetic dance routines into a belting ballad - her rendition of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face was particularly spine tingling.

The same stage set was used throughout and was effective with the use of a few key props although I was a little disappointed that the musicians were hidden at the back – the music is so important in dance so I think it would be nice to show off the musicians - though the fiddler did pop out for a couple of solos and he was excellent!

Bla bla bla, cha cha cha! Not one to miss. For tickets, visit
