Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace are waltzing into Wearside on their final tour – and you could be there for free.
We’ve teamed up with Sunderland Empire to give away a pair of tickets to The Last Tango, the pair’s swansong tour before they hang up their dancing shoes as a duo.
The show will run in Sunderland from February 9 to 13 and follows on from the success of the dancers’ sell-out Midnight Tango and Dance ‘Til Dawn tours.
Twenty years of dancing together has seen the charismatic duo become Strictly Come Dancing favourites, World Argentine Tango Champions, and create and star in their own Olivier Award-nominated West End productions.
But, after deciding to take on new projects, they will be saying goodbye to theatre audiences.
Vincent said: “When we did Midnight Tango it was our first proper taste of theatre. We’re not musical theatre people, we had no experience of being on stage or being part of a musical.
“But we fell in love with the whole story, the beginning, the middle, the end, the lighting, the world you can create on stage. We always felt it should be a trilogy, a box set of three shows. It’s a hybrid of our world and the musical theatre world.
“With the second show, Dance ’Til Dawn, we really pushed the boundaries and we loved it so much we wanted to come back and do a little more of a tango feel, but show our other styles as well as a way of telling the story.”
•The Last Tango is at Sunderland Empire from February 9-13. Tickets are available from Tel. 0844 871 3022 or www.atgtickets.com.
