    CARLOS ESQUINA TANGO SHOW

    by sfphototraveller Written May 7, 2005

    I went to the Carlos Esquina Tango show.
    excuse my spelling if its incorrect.
    There was a bit more opera singing than I thought. The Tango Dancers were excellent.The wine was good the food ok for the amount of people they have to serve.

    I was told that there is another Tango show where the Stage is in the center and offer more singers and dancers and performers like the dancing horse.

    Buenos Aires veut être au tango ce que La Nouvelle Orléans est au jazz

    La capitale argentine vient d'inaugurer le centre d'arts et de spectacles Piazzolla Tango, ainsi nommé en référence au maître du bandonéon Astor Piazzolla, disparu en 1992. Le complexe, de 3.000 m2, comprend un salon de thé, un théâtre-restaurant, un musée consacré à Piazolla, une galerie d'art...
    L'ensemble est situé au sous-sol de la Galerie Güemes, une magnifique galerie belle-époque, qui, à croire le romancier argentin Julio Cortazar, communique directement avec la Galerie Vivienne de Paris. Les prix pratiqués réserveront la fréquentation des lieux aux touristes étrangers. Un repas-spectacle dans une loge coûtera environ 100 dollars, somme correspondant au salaire mensuel d'un instituteur de province.
    Hector Villalba, un professeur de tango, a lui ouvert le mois dernier un hôtel de charme dans une ancienne maison close du quartier historique de San Telmo, juste à côté de son académie de danse. Chacune des quinze chambres est décorée de fresques évoquant le tango. L'idée est de pouvoir proposer à une clientèle fortunée, américaine ou européenne, des "packages" alliant séjour et classes de tango.
    Cette année, la municipalité a organisé pour la première fois un championnat mondial de tango, qui a réunit des participants de 15 pays.
    Le magnat de l'hôtelerie de luxe James Sherwood, qui possède l'hôtel Cipriani à Venise et a relancé le train Orient-Express, vient pour sa part de réouvrir l'un des lieux mythiques du Buenos Aires des années 60: le restaurant La Cabana.
    Le restaurant, spécialisé dans les viandes grillées, était à l'origine installé dans le quartier du Congrès. Il a été déplacé dans le quartier huppé de La Recoleta, où sont concentrés la plupart des palaces de la capitale argentine.

    As we were walking away from the Leather district, we found this statue of Osvaldo Pedro Pugliese, a famous tango musician who passed in 1995, and still getting fresh flowers from his fans.

    Buenos Aires is the birth place of Tango. The tour guide tried to sell tickets to an expensive show, but I found out that street performers were dancing to Tango as well along Calle Florida.

    Tango

    The National Dance.

    It incorporates the essence of passion. It is intense, yet gentle. I loved watching this dance.

    In the streets of Buenos Aires you always find a couple performing a show of tango. This picture was taken in San Telmo, where the open market takes place.

    Take a Tango lesson

    by jazzdiva Written Apr 10, 2005

    We had a private hour-long tango lesson in a beautiful vintage studio. It was a lot of fun, and came in handy when I was surprisingly pulled up on stage at Cafe Tortoni!!!

    You must Tango

    by iam1wthee Updated Mar 31, 2004

    There are tourist places like Senor Tango and Piazzolla but then there are some milangros around town that you should also go checkout as well. Some will show tango mixed with salsa.
