Programme Note

Synopsis:
The three short scenes played without pause are based on actual news clippings of the tango craze which swept Europe and the United States in the years 1913-14. The news stories reflect world-wide reaction to the tango, both favorable and unfavorable. Regardless of any attempts to discredit this dance form, the tango spirit triumphs.
