Midnight Tango, The Phoenix Theatre
Stars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace (of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing) whisk you away to a world of Latin lovers, vibrant colours and irresistible beat in their show Midnight Tango. Set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires, Vincent and Flavia dance up a storm in this passionate tale of romance, full of sensual sequences and intoxicating rhythms. Joined by ten of the best Tango dancers in the world, who bring the seductive South American atmosphere to the West End stage, find yourself captivated as a dark stranger threatens to upset the path of true romance for our leading pair, who encounter excitement and danger, joy and jealousy and passion and pain along the way to a spectacular and explosive ending.
Vincent Simone was born into a family of dancers, with both his parents specialising in Latin and ballroom dancing. Flavia Cacace joined her local ballroom dancing class when she was just 6 years old and has never looked back. Having both previously danced with other partners, the pair met in 1994 and have been dancing together since. Their 2005 debut on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing as choreographers for a group Argentine Tango introduced them to the British audience and, joining the show in the fourth series as professional dance partners for the celebrity contestants, they quickly established themselves as firm favourites with the public. Vincent has enjoyed great success in his pairings with Dani Harmer, who came fourth in the competition in 2012, and Rachel Stevens who came second in 2008. He has also famously danced with Edwina Currie and Felicity Kendal. Flavia danced successfully with Matt Di Angelo in 2007, coming in second place, and won the competition in 2012 with Louis Smith. She has also danced with Jimmy Tarbuck and Jimi Mistry, who she married in 2013.
