FOLLOWING its seventh sold-out season at the Peacock Theatre, the award-winning Tango Fire will tour the UK from February 12 to March 2, 2020.

Tango Fire, a fiery and explosive journey through the history of authentic Argentine Tango, stars internationally renowned Argentinean Tango superstars German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi. They are joined by a cast of extraordinary Tango dancers, including World Tango Champions.

Six incredible couples show off some of the speediest footwork and tightest twirling in the business, while demonstrating their individual styles. They are accompanied by the Tango Fuego Quartet, playing live music on stage from Tango’s most famous composers, including Piazzolla, Pugliese and Gardel.

The six couples are German Cornejo and Gisela Galeassi, Sebastian Alvarez and Victoria Saudelli, Marcos Roberts and Louise Junqueira Malucelli, Ezequiel Lopez and Camila Alegre, Julio Seffino and Carla Dominguez, and Esteban Simon and Marilu Leopardi.

German Corenjo’s past choreography experience includes Immortal Tango (2016), Tango Inferno – The Fire Within (under the Musical Direction of Lisandro Adrover, 2010/2011), Mission Tango Show (2007) and Tango Dance Premium (2007).

Produced by Andrew Kay, Tango Fire has choreography and wardrobe design by German Cornejo and lighting design by Nick Jemicz.
