PORT ANGELES — Get ready for flash and flair of tango.

The Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts will present the Seattle City Sextet and “Tangoheart”‘ tonight, Friday, at 7:30 at the Port Angeles High School Auditorium, 304 E. Park Ave.

Complete with dancers and narrative, “Tangoheart” presents the story of tango’s most controversial figure, Astor Piazzolla.

“Tangoheart” is performed by Bertram Levy and the Seattle City Sextet with dancers Patty Leverett and Kevin Possio. The Seattle City Sextet is dedicated to performing the classic orchestration of the golden age of tango and the modern works of Piazzolla.
