Vincent and Simone still hot to tango

David Upton

Strictly stars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace return to the stage with their new show Tango Moderno.

It comes to the Opera House, Manchester, from October 17 to 21 and includes matinées on Wednesday and Saturday.

Vincent and Flavia have been dance partners for over two decades, world champions, Strictly Come Dancing favourites and acclaimed West End stage stars, whose previous productions Midnight Tango, Dance 'Til Dawn and The Last Tango have all been acclaimed, sell-out hits.

Having originally intended Last Tango to be their farewell tour, Flavia commented, “as we were creating our last show, we developed a number of new routines with so much raw choreography. It was thrilling to still be discovering new numbers for Vincent and I to dance, but we just couldn’t accommodate them in the production.

"We toured the country with the show and were overwhelmed by the support from our audiences and from people asking us to continue.”

The new production fuses ballroom, Latin, and Argentine tango and is directed by Olivier Award winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce.
