Evenings with Argentinian Tango to Brighten up November Darkness
During six evenings, you will have the opportunity to enjoy Argentinian tango at ERI. On stage the esteemed Tango dancer Martin Alvarado from Buenos Aires, the famous Finnish soprano Essi Luttinen and the pianist Petri Haapasalo, all guest starring at ERI this Autumn. With their splendid choreographies, Eeva Soini and Lassi Sairela turn the concert Tango de mi Alma into a brand new work of art, taking tango once more onto new tracks.
In the soulful tango concert, influences from jazz and classical music blend with the traditional Argentinian tango. We will hear Astor Piazzola as well as Carlos Gardel's classics, but also own arrangements. Soini's and Sairela's dance, saturated with passion, emotion and 'saudade', takes the audience to Argentina and the lands where tango – both the music and the dance – was born.
Tango de mi Alma – Evenings with Argentinian Tango is performed only six times at ERI 5.11. & 12.11. at 19, 14.11. & 21.11. at 17, 26.11. at 19 & 28.11. at 17)
