Tango Story was born in 2012 as a project of the European Capital of Culture Maribor 2012 – Ptuj, in collaboration with the world-famous violinist Stefan Milenkovich. Incredibly personal and dazzlingly virtuosic, this music- and dance-based story of the tango found great success throughout Europe and in America. The tale of this sensual Argentinian dance, born in the dark night clubs, bars and bordellos of the port area of Buenos Aires and elevated into art by composer Ástor Piazzolla and other important authors such as Carlos Gardel will be told by charismatic mezzo-soprano Irena Yebuah Tiran and the renowned dramatic actor Pavle Ravnohrib. Tango story returns on this occasion in the hypnotic playing of the internationally acclaimed musicians of the Tango Quintet, joined by the splendid percussionist Nino Mureškić.
