Martin Alvarado: Tango de Amor

A mesmerising evening of tango with the exceptional tenor voice of Argentina's world renowned tango soloist, Martin Alvarado.

His repertoire of work, which has a strong romantic theme, features songs by some of tango's most notable poets and composers including Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel. Alvarado is widely considered to be one of the genre's finest singers and has been called "the voice of tango in the 21st century".

BBC Radio 3 presenters Max Reinhardt and Mary Ann Kennedy have described him as "totally mesmerising" and "completely beguiling". Last year, he was awarded the Latin UK Award for Concert by International Artist of the Year.

Accompanying and complementing his artistry are an extraordinarily gifted talent from Finland, Mikko Helenius, on piano and bandoneon, and two beautifully elegant dancers, Guillermo Torrens and Maria Maragaki, who last year won two Latin UK Awards and who have both performed with Vincent and Flavia, of Strictly Come Dancing fame, in their popular West End show, Midnight Tango.

There will also be a PRE-SHOW TANGO WORKSHOP at 6pm, click HERE for info.
