Tango returns to Granada next week
The 34th edition of the annual International Tango Festival in Granada returns to Isabel la Católica Theatre next week. Fun fact: the festival has managed to run every year since the beginning of the pandemic. Not even Covid-19 has managed to silence tango it seems!
This year the festival kicks off with the opening event on Tuesday the 15th of March at Granada City Hall and continues with nightly shows at 21:00h in the above mentioned theatre from Wednesday the 16th through to Saturday the 19th and a final performance at 20:00h on Sunday the 20th of March. Tickets are on sale from 12 to 18 euros.
But Isabel la Católica Theatre is not the only place where you will find passion for tango this next week. There are a number of other events (some free and some paid) happening around the city.
- Lecture on "Tango as a contemporary urban genre" by Horacio Rebora, with Osvaldo Jimenez on vocals and guitar, on Monday the 14th.
- Four tango classes: two on Saturday the 19th at 12:00h and another two on Sunday the 20th (in Palacio de Quinta Alegre and Arte Bar La Tertulia).
- After parties where you can show off your own steps on Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th at Hotel Maciá Real de la Alhambra from 22:00h.
- And my personal favourite, Baile Popular in Plaza del Carmen (the square in front of Granada City Hall) at 13:00h where anyone is free to join in and dance tango.
