Aptly names The Last Tango, the popular pair will bring the sure to be equally popular show to Newcastle Theatre Royal from October 13-17.

Promising a thrilling live performance, the production will mark the end of two decades of dancing together, during which time they have become Strictly Come Dancing favourites and World Argentine Tango Champions as well as the stars of their own Olivier Award nominated West End productions.

Flavia said: “We have had such a fantastic time creating and dancing in Midnight Tango and Dance ’Til Dawn. It’s an incredible experience to perform live in front of our wonderful audience night after night, but all good things must come to an end, so we’re creating our final ever theatre show.

“It’s going to be intimate, intense and full of our award-winning Argentine tango. The Last Tango is going to showcase our best work and most beautiful dance moves before we finally say farewell to theatre.”

Vincent added: “The last few years have been amazing – we’ve loved it. It may be our final theatre tour but we’re going to go out with a bang. This is going to be our best show yet.”

The Last Tango will be performed at Newcastle Theatre Royal from October 13-17. For tickets, whic go on sale on May 1, call 08448 11 21 21 or visit www.theatreroyal.co.uk
