Expect to see a lot more than just tango at La Ventana. The two-hour show was a sensation for me. The tango dances were beautiful and sexy. The dancers performed in pairs and in groups. Aside from the tango dances, there was a spectacular Gaucho show that I suspect could never been performed in the US due to the performer's safety concerns. The biggest surprise for me was the tribute to Evita performance which brought tears to many audience, including me who has limited knowledge in Argentine history.
The venue is a tastefully restored private residence with exposed beams and brick walls. There is a collection of "local heroes" pictures on the wall including Evita and Diego Maradona. We chose not to have dinner with the show. In retrospect, I would recommend others to choose to have dinner since guests having dinner were sat at the stage level (instead of the balcony) with a better view of the stage. Dinner looked and smelled great - steaks and Malbec!
There were many Argentines at the show. The lady sitting next to our table asked whether we liked the show, we replied "that was fantastic". She proudly said to us, "It's Argentina! My country!"
