The Romeo and Juliet Tango

Go down

The Romeo and Juliet Tango Empty The Romeo and Juliet Tango

Post  Angus A Fitziron Fri Feb 26, 2010 1:38 pm

Some of you may have seen the threads about Astillero on BG (Sepiachord made them track of the day after listening!) Well last night I saw them in a local production of Romeo and Juliet. The combination of Shakespeare and modern tango was breathtaking. The orchestra (all 6 of them - very traditional in instruments) sat at the back of the stage on a raised platform, with the main stage in front projecting into the audience. The band also took part in the play representing several of the players. I can't help thinking that this is how Shakespeare should be performed - I was tantalised, I laughed, I cried, I was mesmerised! Why post it as steampunk? Well, Shakespeare is timeless and I am sure an SP version of one of the many plays can't be far off (unless you know different?) and the tango began just in our period of interest although its heyday was firmly in the later part of the first half of the 20th C., so would be of more interest to those of a diesel persuasion. However, the music has undergone a regeneration, taken back by the young in heart and mind and re-invented as something to be owned and experimented with rather than left as a dusty museum artifact (sound familiar?)
