NOTES: Mango Tango is a fantasy, though Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez, who were the right age to have gone to tango clubs in the 1930s, and could have met Valentino (who did La Cumparsita in film) at the La Giralda Café in Montevideo. They might have bumped into Carlos Gardel, doing Volver in Buenos Aires.

Included in the music adaptations are: Pascuale Narro’s Espana Cani, George Bizet’s Habanera, Joseph LaCalle’s Amapola, Ernesto Lecuona’s Siboney, Ernesto Lazareth’s Odeon, Francisca Gonzaga’s Atrahente, Gerardo Rodriguez’s La Cumparsita, and Carlos Gardel’s Volvar.

Scored for trio – Violin, Cello and Piano.
