With the summer festivals in full swing all around Italy, it is not hard to find evening entertainment for just about every interest. Stages have been set up and remain in place for the parade of musicians performing on their scheduled night. Exhibitions of well-known local or Italian artists are not uncommon. And schools put on dance performances for entertainment and promotional purposes.
For this reason, I had reservations about going to see the tango show in Novara. On previous occasions I've been disappointed by the performance tango shows as they were diluted with ballet. But last night's show was the pure, unadulterated version of the dance and I happily absorbed the music and the movement.
Milongueando Accademia di Tango hosted the event and are performing in several Piemonte locations; Milan, Biella, Vercelli and Novara. Their last performance (free entrance) for this festival will be in Vercelli on Sunday the 26, 2009 at the Livorno Ferraris Piazza. If you plan to go, the guest artists, Silvana and Eduardo will wow you with their unity, passion and obvious joy dancing.
I was an idiot for leaving my camera at home (not a_GAIN!!!) so I searched for a clip of them for you to enjoy.
