Overview

Strictly Come Dancing has been a national phenomenon, taking over TV screens across the country on Saturday nights for countless years. Two of the brightest stars to have shone throughout the years are the magnificent Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, brought their show The Last Tango to the Phoenix Theatre in London from 3rd September 2016 to 3rd December 2016.

The pair have previously toured the country with their immensely popular and much loved productions Midnight Tango and Dance ‘Til Dawn. This will sadly be the pair’s farewell tour together, after an illustrious career which has spanned many years.

The Strictly Come Dancing superstars came up with their most emotive and heartfelt performance, to form their final ever theatre tour The Last Tango, which created the ultimate goodbye for two dancing legends.

Not only have Vincent and Flavia become television favourites, they have also won World Dance titles and created and starred in a range of spectacular West End shows, during their immense career that has spanned over twenty years.

This is the ideal chance for fans of the UK’s most loved Argentine Tango Champions in this exciting new performance that is set to move and thrill audiences in equal measure. The intimate environment of the Phoenix Theatre was the ideal setting for you to experience the entire drama, emotion and passion of the expert dancers.

Flavia Cacace was born in Naples before moving to Guildford as a child. In a similar turn of events, Italian born Vincent Simone also moved to the town in Surrey as a teenager, where with a similar love of dance, they were paired together by their mutual dance teacher. Since that first meeting, the two have continued to perform together over the subsequent decades.

The show, The Last Tango, follows the story of the protagonist George as he looks back through his life in an attic packed full of memories, the story of which is performed through a combinations of flamenco, jive, rumba, salsa and of course, the tango. The two dancing greats are accompanied by a range of other brilliant performers and a spectacular live band.

The Last Tango was directed by the Olivier Award-winning director and choreographer Karen Bruce, and has wowed audiences around the UK as part of a 33 week-long tour that arrived at the Phoenix Theatre in September 2016.

The dynamic duo Vincent and Flavia stepped out on the London stage for one last time as part of their farewell tour The Last Tango which opened at the Phoenix Theatre on 22nd September 2016 and ran until 3rd December 2016. This is a show perfect for any Strictly fans!
