Houston's 5 Best Weekend Events: Tango Buenos Aires, With Wild Abandon, Modern Masters & More

Eva Perón, Argentina's beloved and wildly famous former First Lady, has inspired generations of her compatriots with her rags-to-riches life. Evita, the Broadway show and subsequent movie based on her life, tells her story through music. With The Song of Eva Perón, Tango Buenos Aires tells her story through dance this Friday. Tango, to be precise. Led by Artistic Director Rosario Bauza and choreographer Héctor Falcón, Tango Buenos Aires performs an evening-length tribute to Perón, from her rise to fame in the 1930s to her tragic death in 1952.
