The Colon Theater is in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. It's a very big building with wonderful acoustics. Every day there are ballet performances, tango, concerts and wonderful operas. Also, there are tributes to important musicians. I am going to this place today to watch a tango show, the traditional Argentinian dance.

I'll be right with you...
