Directed by Lorita Travaglia, “El Tango” celebrates the legacy of Jorge Luis Borges, Argentina’s literary genius and Astor Piazzolla, Argentina’s composer/bandoneon master and inventor of Nuevo Tango.Both were considered universal thinkers and masters in their own fields and collaborated in 1965 to create the album, El Tango..

“El Tango” gives insight into the mind of blind poet, Borges, and his stories and poems, narrated by veteran actor Joey Wishnia, come to life through the provocative Argentine Tango. The emotions of each piece are expressed through the dance and the evocative music of Piazzolla.

The vision of Parasol Arts since 2012 has been to combine the great arts of music, literature, fine art and dance through the medium of Argentine Tango. Parasol Arts’ productions vividly portray through the magic and passion of Tango the complexities and emotions of life and its trials, tribulations and joys.

Parasol Arts has collaborated with these wonderful musicians since 2013 and is very excited to finally be together again after the pandemic prevented the band from being in Colorado in person for “The Seasons” in 2020 and 2021.
