The Pan American Symphony Orchestra performs the U.S. premiere of La CarmenTango on Saturday, March 6th at the George Washington University Lisner’s Auditorium.

This cutting-edge show with an original score by Argentine composer and arranger, Raul Garello, takes the world’s most loved story of passion, obsession, and revenge and sets it in turn of the century Buenos Aires.

Alicia Orlando, a Buenos Aires-based choreographer has magically woven tango dance and ballet into an expertly tight and riveting performance featuring her husband, Claudio Barneix, and Lucy Bowen McCauley, the founder and director of the Arlington-based Bowen McCauley Dance Company.

Both Orlando and Barneix can lay claim to tango authenticity in their dance interpretations, having danced with the best tango orchestras in Argentina for over 25 years. The Bowen McCauley Company joins them filling the stage with its signature style to portray this new story of Carmen set among the docks of Buenos Aires.

As the founder and director of the only orchestra in the U.S. that plays solely tango and Latin American repertoire, Maestro Sergio Alessandro Buslje, a native of Argentina, executes the whole production with energy and charisma.
