OUR LAST TANGO is, first and foremost, a love
story. It’s the love story of the two most famous
dancers in the history of the tango: María Nieves
(78) and Juan Carlos Copes (81). They met when
they were 14 and 17, respectively, and danced
together for nearly half a decade. In all those
years they loved and hated each other and
went through several painful separations but
always got back together in life and on stage. No
other man danced like Juan and no other woman
danced like María. Eventually, though, he left her
for good, for a woman 25 years his junior with
whom he fathered two children. Today, in old
age, María is willing for the first time to tell their
story and to open up about their love, their hatred
and their passion.
