Glamour Tango marks a multimedia show of music, dance, and theatrical set and lighting, created as a tribute to those women who quietly wrote the pages of Tango from the very beginning. This is a unique approach within the Tango style, since all performing artists on this show are female.
Glamour Tango was conceived and is directed by Uruguayan pianist and Musical Director Polly Ferman. This passionate celebration of women in Tango consists of an internationally renowned musical quintet as well as dancers, and a vocalist.
Glamour Tango is based in Buenos Aires and New York City. It does take the audience on a musical journey through the 20th century, showcasing a fresh and renovated vision of the role of women in Tango.
