Tango Lovers returns to the stage with their award-winning dancers and musicians from Argentina and Uruguay!
Volver marks the return to the stage of the large-scale productions we enjoyed before the pandemic while also telling the story of tango artists returning to their home country after working abroad. The show explores the feelings of nostalgia and longing for one’s homeland as well as the excitement and awakening to a new world and a new life. The five dance couples, which include World Tango Champions from Argentina and Uruguay, and the seven-piece musical group led by Grammy and Latin Grammy-award winning bandoneonist Lautaro Greco, will take the audience around the world and through time in a whirlwind of dance, music, and breathtaking visuals. But it also stands as a tribute to Alfredo Lérida, founder of Tango Lovers, who passed away last year. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Lérida shared the stage with such great tango artists as Rubén Juárez, Raúl Jaurena, Federico Britos, Luis Dimas and Nestor Fabian. Alfredo created the show Enamorados del Tango and remained as singer, general director and producer of Tango Lovers until his death. His company Tango Lovers received the ACE award and the Fox Music award in 2016 and 2017 as Best Musical Show of the Year. His company was appointed Cultural Ambassadors by the Uruguayan government.
Volver is part of the International Latino Cultural Center’s annual Latino Music Series.
