Colores del Tango is an international tango ensemble, comprising a five-piece band and three dancers who are currently making a big name across Europe. The performances in Malta are going to be held on February 25 and 26, and tickets are already selling steadily.

The performance is a taster of the 20th century dance and music in Argentina that takes the audience through the sultry summer nights in Buenos Aires where tango has a special atmosphere. Colores del Tango is a unique tango show full of passion, emotion and artistic beauty.

It focuses mainly on the magical music of Astor Piazzolla, together with other traditional Argentine music which is provided live by the Beltango Quinteto, an authentic tango orchestra from Belgrade. The band has been touring Europe and will be coming to Malta straight from its performance in Steyr, Austria.

The organisers of this event have also thought of giving an additional thrill to all those seeking quality entertainment by organising a social Argentine tango gala evening, the Arte Pasión Grand Milonga. After the theatre performance all the ticket holders for the Colores del Tango performance at the Manoel Theatre will be invited for a complimentary drink to a prestigious venue, Casino Maltese in Valletta, which is only a short walk up from the theatre. Bar service and food will be available at the venue. The gala evening on February 25 will also be accessible to people who are looking for an alternative evening of excellent entertainment, so separate tickets will be available. 

An added flavour to this event is the putting up of a tango-inspired art exhibition by local artists with the theme The Colours of Tango, which is being organised as part of this Argentine tango weekend.
