Tango Show at Buenos Aires Planetarium

Tango Show Planetario

A Tango Show will be projected on Buenos Aires Planetarium dome screen, starting on April 15. Without a doubt, Tango is one of the trademarks of Buenos Aires. You can´t think of one, without the other. And Piazzolla is one of the first names that come to mind when you think about Buenos Aires Tango. So, Buenos Aires Planetarium came up with the amazing idea of mixing them up, creating a show called Tango 360˚.

A 26-minute Tango Show

The 26 minutes tango show narrates a story of passion and dance with Buenos Aires as the scenery. The music, “Las cuatro estaciones” by Piazzolla, is played by the Escaladrum Group, run by Piazzolla´s grandson. Images and animations are in high definition, and are projected on a full dome screen, like the ceiling of the Planetarium.  This type of shows are called immersive movies.

It is the first Piazzolla’s piece of sheet music that was ever filmed and animated.

Astor Piazzolla’s nuevo tango

Astor Piazzolla, was one the most famous Tango composer and bandoneon player of the 20th century. He created New Tango, a sound that revolutionized traditional Tango adding different instruments from Jazz and Classical music.

As a new sound was born, so was the controversy. Traditional “tangueros” accused his work of not being Tango, but later intellectuals and musicians reinvidicated his music.

He often worked with two of the most important figures in Tango industry: Hugo Ferrer – a tango writer – and Amelita Baltar – a singer, with whom he became romantically involved.

Astor Piazzolla´s pieces that you can´t miss are Adios Nonino, Balada para un loco and Libertango.
