Astor Piazzolla straddled both the classical tango and its darker side in the streets of Buenos Aires. Opera North make a welcome return to Lakeside with a programme that sold out earlier this year. This popular concert uncovers both sides of Piazzolla and his characteristically dangerous and exuberant energy. In this unique chamber concert Opera North is joined by some of the finest musical exponents of the classical tango. Highlights of the concert include excerpts from Piazzolla’s only opera, Maria de Buenos Aires, and his masterpiece, the Concerto del Angel. Together with projected film, narration and lighting, Tango Apasionado promises an evening of drama and beauty, from a music filled with rage.
