‘With music ranging from Bizet to Puccini, ‘Violetta’s Last Tango’ succeeds in showcasing a variety of arias in a fluid and structured way. The music is utterly sensational, as is the dance. A sublime evening well worth attending.’

‘I attended Violetta’s last tango twice at the Fringe Festival this year as the production and its mix of styles of music fusing tango and opera, which worked a treat, fascinated me. It was entertainment and enjoyment all the way. Fantastic venue also made it quite an intimate space embracing the world of tango, cabaret and opera under one roof – what a beautiful space! The music was played arranged very appropriately and sympathetically by Julian Rowlands (a one man band) supported with a range of background visuals which showcased some other members of the bigger band which was a good touch and addition to the show. Ann and Nuno sang beautifully together and complemented eachother very well. Nuno’s is also a contemporary dancer and his interpretations with tango moves were sublime. Being a tango dancer, singer and musician myself I appreciated all that this show had to offer. I also enjoyed the chance to dance at the end of the show with some fellow tango dancers at the Milonga – what fun!! Thank you Ann, Julian and Nuno for a great show!!’

‘Violetta’s Last Tango at the Ghillie Dhu provided a rich hour-long experience of tango-related music and dance. Ann Liebeck (‘Violetta’) and Nuno Silva (‘Alfredo’), accompanied by Julian Rowlands on bandoneon and keyboard, enacted a drama based on a dream-like sequence of recollections underpinned by music which connected classic Argentinian dance to the European classical tradition, including opera, which forms part of its basis. References to La Traviata and Manon Lescaut punctuated the drama which was strong in atmosphere while not lacking moment-to-moment incident. Nuno Silva’s vocal contributions – he features mainly as an athletic dancer – were only occasional but very pleasing; Ann Liebeck shone vocally throughout, not least in the more classical items such as Ravel’s wordless habanera. Julian Rowlands, arranger of much of the material, provided unfailing support.’
