Tejada Carranza and is made up of 16 artists. Throughout the evening, spectators will be treated to some of the most amazing and traditional tango dancing routines coupled with the beautiful music of a string chamber orchestra. It really is a fabulous combination and well worth witnessing for yourselves!

The show starts at 9.00pm on Saturday 11th May 2013.
