My favorite performances: La capilla blanca (Di Sarli)

My choice for this week is ‘La capilla blanca’ (Carlos Di Sarli with Alberto Podestá, 1944). I reviewed 36 performances.

My favorite: Michelle & Murat Erdemsel and Roxana Suárez & Sebastián Achával (ex aequo).

I also liked the performance by Natacha Lockwood & Claudio Coppola.
