Strictly dance superstars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace return to Manchester with their new dance show Tango Moderno coming to the Opera House.

The new dance show follows their previous Manchester sensations The Last Tango at Manchester Opera House and Tangomotion at the Lowry.

Vincent and Flavia have been dance partners for over two decades, world champions, Strictly Come Dancing favourites and acclaimed West End stage stars, whose previous productions Midnight Tango, Dance Til Dawn and The Last Tango have all been acclaimed, sell-out hits.

Having originally intended The Last Tango to be their farewell tour, Flavia commented: “As we were creating our last show, we developed a number of new routines with so much raw choreography. It was thrilling to still be discovering new numbers for Vincent and I to dance, but we just couldn’t accommodate them in the production. We toured the country with the show and were overwhelmed by the support from our audiences and from people asking us to continue.

“Vincent and I spoke at the end of the tour and we decided that we wanted to continue. We love dancing together, we are having so much fun and a year after our last UK tour, we are more excited than ever to share this new work and show with our audiences.”

Tango Moderno brings together Ballroom, Latin and Argentine tango under the direction of Olivier Award winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce.

Where and when does Tango Moderno run in Manchester?

Tango Moderno, staring Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, runs at Manchester Opera House from 17 October until 21 October 2017.
