Set in the seductive twilight of an Argentinean evening, Todo Buenos Aires puts the tango on pointe while maintaining its sultry heat and rhythmic beat.
Danced against lush black and purple drapery, the five dances that comprise this work offer different interpretations of tango. The original production of the ballet premiered on May 3, 2000, and was set to two Piazzolla tangos, La Mufa and Todo Buenos Aires, which had been orchestrated by composer John Adams. An expanded and re-choreographed version of the ballet, which premiered January 8, 2005, featured guest artist Julio Bocca. For this production, NYCB Orchestra member Ron Wasserman arranged five Piazzolla tangos, including La Mufa and Todo Buenos Aires, for chamber orchestra.
