Information from Viator
Lightning-quick feet and furious with passion — some of the best tango dancers in town will steal your breath away during La Ventana, a show not to be missed. Take your seat inside a restored tenement located in San Telmo, the Buenos Aires barrio where the sultry dance began. Mix in two tango orchestras, vocalists, a folk band, a demo of gaucho-cowboy culture, and you have a night to remember. Make the most of it with an upgrade to enjoy a sumptuous three-course meal with your wine before the show.
After hotel pickup, head to the cobblestone streets of San Telmo, the birthplace of tango and the oldest barrio in Buenos Aires. Arrive at a conventillo, a historic tenement restored and now used as a restaurant-theater, where La Ventana takes place. As you stroll through the theater’s preserved architectural interior, travel back in time to the tango grandeur of the early 1900s. If you’ve opted for dinner, arrive 90 minutes before showtime and dig into a three-course meal featuring a wide array of Argentine and international dishes, accompanied by Argentine wines. See below for a sample menu. Or, if you chose the show-only option, slip into your seat in time for the performance, and enjoy provided wine or soft drinks. Two tango orchestras and an Argentine folk music group provide live accompaniment to the five smartly costumed couples on stage, who grace the stage with sensuality and breathtaking precision. Listen to both Spanish and indigenous styles of music from the bands as well as vocalists. Get a glimpse of the gaucho culture, or Argentina’s version of cowboys, through a demonstration of boleadoras, used to wrangle livestock. After the show closes with a moving tribute to Eva Perón, your driver takes you back to your hotel.
