Show synopsis Juan Molina, the greatest tango singer after Carlos Gardel, loved tango so much that instead of him creating tangos, we can say it created him. Due to the devotion to this music, the loyalty to the fatal destiny awaiting him and to the faithfulness to Carlos Gardel, he chose to live in Gardel's shadow and keep the passions that consumed him hidden. This wonderful story by the author of The Anatomist, instead of being told, should be sung. With irrefutable mastery, Andahazi offers the pleasure of reading this new narrative form and the privilege to have a first row seat to an unpublished musical melodrama sung in tangos. This is the story of three lives that fuse together in the tragedy of the tango. At the beginning, we find ourselves before a legendary Buenos Aires during the golden age of the tango, where in a street corner the destinies of the three protagonists meet: Juan Molina, driving his truck; Carlos Gardel, in the backseat of his limousine after a night of partying; and Ivonne, an irresistible and cocaine addict prostitute, who is almost run over by Molina when crossing the street. At this moment, the main facts of their lives are evoked in a fast chain of events, which will bring repressed passions, love triangles, secrets and tragedies.
