The programme includes two world premieres and two UK premieres, with lyrics from work by master poets Federico García Lorca and Pablo Neruda.

The evening features music by Ernesto Lecuona, Cuba's answer to George Gershwin and contemporary Cuban composers Omar Puente and Guido López-Gavilán.

Plus, hear from Grammy Award-winning Cuban composer Yalil Guerra; Grammy Award-winning Argentinian composer Fernando Otero; and tango composer Julian Rowlands, who was Olivier Award-nominated alongside the cast of Midnight Tango.
