It Takes FGO to Tango

Celebrated dance critic Margaret Putnam once wrote: “Tango is the Everest of social dance. Impossible. Demanding. Intricate. And therefore irresistible.” Astor Piazzolla must have believed this to be true as well, as he poured every one of those adjectives into every musical note of his life’s work, also adding a few more like violent, sad and secretive. María de Buenos Aires, his “Tango Operita,” was part of a double bill last Thursday evening along with american composer Robert Xavier Rodriguez’ Tango presented on Florida Grand Opera’s “Unexpected Operas in Unexpected Places” program. The venue, Design District’s The Stage, was not all that an “Unexpected Place,” since it regularly hosts live music, film, and theater — but this was a first venture into nightlife for FGO.
