Guests can attend the show or opt to couple it with a pre-show dinner, where you’ll dine in style in Hotel Faena’s dramatic red velvet and gold cabaret theater. The dazzling tango performances—which take you on a journey from the roots of tango to the modern-day—are equally impressive, including an extensive repertoire of jazz and classical tango by legendary Argentine composer Ástor Piazzolla. It’s a luxury experience from start to finish, with exquisite costumes, a tango quintet performing live, and a wine list featuring top quality Malbecs and choice vintage wines.
