Launching on January 22, 2022, NOBA begins the season with global phenomenon The Tango Fire Company of Buenos Aires’ Tango Fire, the world’s leading Tango company. As one of the world’s most popular dance forms, this exhilarating dance spectacular melds rawness and sophistication with the seductive and sultry, mesmerizing audiences every step of the way. With a cast including World Tango Champions and dancers from the greatest Tango houses in Buenos Aires, German Cornejo, international Tango superstar and choreographer, and his partner, Gisela Galeassi, evoke the intoxicating passion of late-night Buenos Aires in an evening of dance the Financial Times deems “irresistible,” and The Telegraph (UK) proclaims “sensual, erotic, and authentically Argentinian.”
Tango Fire is accompanied by a live ensemble consisting of four of Argentina’s finest young musicians. Together, they give their interpretation of traditional and contemporary tangos. All virtuosos in their own right, the quartet powerhouse is an emotive element in an intricate and symbiotic relationship between music, sensuality of dance, and the poetry of song, which is Argentine Tango.
