Life in the rhythm of tango is a dramatic performance about the life and work of the outstanding Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, who wrote tango and became the founder of new trends in tango: Tango Nuevo. Piazzolla’s life was full of women, traveling, and difficulties - as any other person’s life was. It was full of the most diverse music: from jazz to classical. The pinnacle of his work became his works in tango, which are still very popular nowadays. You can hear the famous "Libertango" in film "The North Bridge" by Jacques Rivette, "Frantic" by Roman Polanski, "The Tango Lesson" by Sally Potter.
"Assassin`s Tango" appears in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" movie.

This is the first performance of the series "Music Portraits" - about the life and work of great composers” performed by Maskam Rad Theatre. The second play of the series called "Red lover.
