About the Event
Born in the dimly lit streets of Buenos Aires, tango tells tales of heavy-hearted lovers, violent conquests and the yearning for a better life. The music is melancholic and fiery, born in both the shadows and under the moonlight. The MELBOURNE TANGO ORCHESTRA is sure to glisten and sparkle; shock and enthrall. Be there! One night only!
With sell-out shows across Melbourne and regional Victoria, the MTO draws upon a wealth of experience. The MTO kicks the cliché and pursues contemporary, urban and edgy tango music. Australia’s only orquesta típica, the MTO performs repertoire from tango’s Golden Era and beyond, featuring strings, piano, double bass and the notorious bandoneón, the quintessential symbol of Argentinean tango.
The newly refurbished Brunswick Ballroom is located in the old Metropolis House on Sydney Road and is destined to take the mantle as one of Melbourne’s most dynamic and exciting performance venues.
Come see the MTO perform at this iconic venue, the dance floor will be open, and it’s set to be one of our most special events of the year!
