West End show review: German Cornejo’s Tango After Dark at Peacock Theatre 11-22 October 2022

Breathtaking. Sexy. Timeless. I am certainly biased because I dance tango and I love Argentina, but Tango After Dark has to be the most spectacular tango show on the planet right now. Following the success of Wild Tango back in May,  World Tango Champion German Cornejo returns to Peacock Theatre (Sadler Wells) with his superb dance company. 
 
His new choreography is based on traditional Argentine tango. Accompanied by two sensational singers and seven musicians playing the great tango composer Astor Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango, which creates a powerfully sensual atmosphere, these ten world-class Argentinean dancers including Gisela Galeassi will keep your passion for tango burning deep into the night. 
The dance company is based in  Buenos Aires so this is a unique opportunity to see the show before it continues its world tour.

Tango After Dark delves into the passionate side of Argentine tango. It makes you want to dance it straight away. My feet were moving under the seat. My body felt transported to a magical dimension, to Buenos Aires after dark, when most people are asleep and only the milongueros, the tangueros are out dancing the night away. It made me dream. It made me want to book a flight to Buenos Aires. 

With glamorous costumes, exceptional dancing and enchanting music, Tango After Dark captivated the audience at sold-out premiere last night in London, unveiling Tango in its purest form.

From seriously sensual to irresistibly stylish, the sultry and talented award-winning cast of dancers, joins forces with two of the finest singers from Argentina and a sensational live band of seven musicians to bring alive an intimate and electrifying production that is unforgettable.  

Don’t miss the opportunity to see authentic Argentinian Tango performed by the very best in the World and be enchanted by the seductive powers of this show. Tickets available from here.
