TALLINN - Tango Seduccion, the popular tango show, is one of the entertainment highlights in the run- up to Christmas in Tallinn.

Created and directed by Gustavo Rosso, a former student from Argentina who quit studying medicine for tango some 15 years ago, Tango Seduccion (Tango Seduction) shows you the entire spectrum of tango dancing and techniques in one enthralling event.

The characters in the show meet in a bar and tell the story of the dance that has endeared itself to people all around the world, including such cold and northern countries as Finland and Estonia.

The dancers, who are all professional with years of tango experience, will first show the elements tango borrowed from other forms of dance. Then comes the comic part, a parody of the stereotyped image of tango, followed by a series of dance acts that pay homage to various tango composers, such as the Argentine musician Astor Piazzolla, who is credited for having revitalized tango music in the 1940s by enriching it with elements borrowed from jazz and electronic music. The Piazzolla-style Tango Nuevo, which is much edgier than classical tango, is one such part of the show.

Tango Seduccion features single and multiple dance pair acts, erotic and dramatic scenes and the highest quality tango experience available this side of the equator.

This is the second time the Tango Seduccion show has come to Tallinn, following a successful performance in December 2002.
