Starting from nothing but propelled by the influence of tango, Perón attains stardom and bloomed to be Argentina‘s First Lady. Tango Buenos Aires tells her story through the interpretation of the Tango dance. The performance is set to “The Songs of Eva Perón,” which is divided into two acts. The first act focuses on her rise to stardom while the second depicts her love for Argentina.
Dancer and teacher of Tango and Argentinean Folk Dances, Hector Falcón serves as the choreographer for the show. Falcón has worked for "Grandes Valores del Tango," the biggest Tango television show in Argentina, which provided him an enormous amount of exposure as well as status as one of the best tango choreographers of all times. Fernando Marzan serves as the show’s pianist and composer. He has previous experience in the role as Tango Buenos Aires’ musical director and arranger and also has participated in the recording of several CDs, including the soundtrack for the film Evita.
Tango Buenos Aires has become one of Argentina’s great cultural exports having traveled extensively throughout the world for close to 30 years. Tango choreography allows for a lot of creativity, requiring breaks in the rhythm and perfect coordination between the dancers. The tango represented many almost infinite feelings and an expanded mental and moral evolution of itself and of the city that is depicted in it. The Lincoln Journal Star describes the performance as "fast and furious, the dancers' feet and legs flashed and wove in and around each other, or paused to move slowly and seductively, stretching the tension within the dance."
