We are still in the middle of summer, but behind the scenes we are already incredibly busy with all the preparations for the new seaon. Ansd we have got a lot of great things coming up!
Tango Extremo is giong to play big reprises. The first one is of the theatreshow ‘Havana’ and the second one is of the performance ‘De Mattheus Passie’. For this last performance we this year have a new evangelist. Our regular colleague Jan Rot, who was taking care of this role in previous years, couldn’t make himself free for this season, due to another production. He will be replaced by the legendary actor Peter Faber. We are very happy to welcome him into the family!
