Equal parts theater, music and séance, “That’s Not Tango” combines the raw intimacy of Piazzolla’s music
with the momentum of a sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, always surprising dramatic narrative.
This is Astor Piazzolla, as you’ve never seen – or heard – him before.
What people are saying about “That’s’ Not Tango"
IT’S A NEW ART FORM!!
I have never seen or heard anything like this.
It made me smile, it me laugh out loud, it made me cry, it ASTONISHED ME MUSICALLY
John Snyder, five-time Grammy award-winning recording producer
SOPHISTICATED CONCERT MUSIC BURSTING WITH EROTIC ENERGY.
This show seems willing to question everything.
The New York Times
Ms. Karsten is a MIRACLE OF NATURE.
That's Not Tango is A FASCINATING ALMOST MESMERIC exercise in acting and music.
Thank you for one of the most UPLIFTING, LIFE-AFFIRMING and ENJOYABLE performances I have attended in a very long time.
Philip Greenberg, Conductor/Artistic Director, Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra
Exceptional musicians transport listeners to A SOUL-FILLED REALM OF NIRVANA.
The show begins with an AGGRESSIVE INTENSITY.
That´s Not Tango achieves something very difficult: CAPTURING THE SOUL OF AN ARTIST in 90 minutes.
I CANNOT REMEMBER A BETTER PERFORMANCE.
If that performance is the last one I ever see, I will die fulfilled.
The word EXTRAORDINARY simply does not do it justice.
