I wasn't very exited about the opportunity to go to La Tarumba when it was suggested but I'm so glad I went. It was such and interesting and great show.

We had the pleasure to enjoy La Tarumba latest show "Zanni"and it was simply incredible. The whole environment, the live music, and the artists were absolutely fantastic. Totally recommendable, just can't wait for next year's show!

First up, take a taxi there - the streets around Barranco and Chorrillos are a nightmare of one-ways. We arrived to view 'Don Quijote' just as the house lights were going down in the big top. Live criollo music formed a great backdrop throughout the show, providing atmosphere for the performers and interludes while the staging was changed. The individual... More
