The choreographer of the ballet “Tango”, Svetlin Ivelinov pointed out the most characteristic for the production:
“A sudden, unexpected, touching impulse: passion, power, love. A love, stirring up expectations, opening a way – unsuspected and unknown. Events follow, evoked by desires for resistance and irreconcilability, inevitably influenced by real and supernatural images, interweaved into the web of life.”
H.E. Alfredo Néstor Atanasof, Ambassador of the Argentine Republic in Bulgaria, shared about the production of “Tango”:
“In the attitude of the Bulgarian audience I feel great interest in Argentinean culture and more specially in tango. In Bulgaria there are a lot of schools, in which is taught tango, and there are musicians, who play tango. This is why I think that the ballet TANGO will be a real cultural event, and we, Argentinians, shall be forever grateful that so far away from our motherland you will pay honour to a composer of the importance of Astor Piazzolla.”
