S The Show

The atmosphere of Chantecler, the most important and luxurious Buenos Aires cabaret had in 40's, is recreated in a story set between the present and the past.

In modern times, a young man apparently interested in buying the old abandoned Chantecler, demolished and forgotten by time, dirty, empty but full of stories, legends and mysteries, runs the place next to the seller of a property and the old serene that custody.

The space, magically, will come to life, and back to long ago, to its heyday.

Ángel, the keeper, otrora the cuban prince, cabaret entertainer, begins to remember the night of Chantecler: characters, tragedies, Rithana –the main dancer who had everybody surrendered at her feet, police intrigue and passions.

The old Chantecler reappears and start several parallel stories unfold in a constant back and forth between the golden age of tango and the present: the one from Ángel nowadays, the sale of the premises and the new destination; the one from Rithana and its relationship with the Chief of Police and the cabaret singer and director of the orchestra, his wife and her lover.

Tangos of the '40s, especially compositions Juan D´Arienzo, jazz from the same era and original music composed by Gerardo Gardelín are the music stand that frames the choreographic display which tells the story.
