40% off !!! EXPLOSIVE DANCE MUSICAL: Arrabal (show & free tango lesson $29 up)

Join us on a journey to Argentina for the mesmerizing dance musical Arrabal, a feast for the eyes, ears and heart! Before the show, there will be a free, 30-minute tango lesson onstage!

Our group will save up to 40 per cent off the regular price.


Arrabal is an explosive story told entirely through dance and the music of multiple Academy Award® winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel) and his band Bajofondo.

Using a modern tango dance vocabulary never seen before, director Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis) and choreographer Julio Zurita create a dramatic vision that is emotional, sexual and powerful. With a book written by Tony Award® nominee John Weidman (Contact), follow Arrabal, our heroine, in this coming of age story as she enters the underground world of Buenos Aires’ tango clubs and discovers the violent history that took her father and disrupted a nation. Arrabal is based on the true story of the political violence that threatened to destroy Argentina in the 1970’s. With a live band and performers direct from Buenos Aires, experience the sensual beauty and political intrigue that is ARRABAL. More information.

    We sat on the stage and it was a wonderful experience. We even had the opportunity to dance with the performers. Good thing we had taken Tango lessons in the past. The show was fantastic and I would recommend seeing it.

    I also enjoyed it more than Heartbeat.
    I would have liked a little more classical tango and a little less volume, but my attention to the story never wandered.

    I loved this, less slick but way more passionate than Heartbeat of Home.

      @ Lauren: Oops sorry. I must have copied that section from an old event page. I will actually be in a subscription seat. I've updated this event page.
