The eight-season series finishes with a musical comparison of two global cities – New York and London. Tango, jazz and musicals had already conquered the world by the 1960s. The programme consists of hits that have become the symbols of their era: “Yo soi, Maria” from Piazolla’s tango opera “Maria de Buenos Aires”, the theme from Legrand’s “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg”, McHugh’s song “On the Sunny Side of the Street” and Berlin’s jazz standard “Alexander’s Ragtime”.
