An ageing singer in a Buenos Aires cabaret, Violetta refuses to let illness overcome her as she sings her impassioned tango songs each night for her clients. After a chance encounter in the street, she is overwhelmed by vivid memories of desire, jealousy, and her great lost love. Immersing herself in a world of vanished dreams, Violetta dances the milonga one last time. VLT was performed to full houses at Kings Place in December 2014 and at South Bank Centre, London, in May. Ann Liebeck, Nuno Silva and Olivier award nominated composer Julian Rowlands perform.
