Spain’s finest dancers and musicians return to City Center for the 20th Anniversary of Flamenco Festival.

Compañía Manuel Liñán

Apr 22 Fri 8pm
Approximately 2 hours with no intermission

“This is the kind of flamenco everyone should see”
The Arts Desk (UK)

Manuel Liñán has garnered international praise for his showmanship and the sincerity with which he challenges the rules of traditional flamenco. In VIVA! he is joined by six other bailaores-bailarinas, male dancers dressed in traditional female costumes, for a jubilant expression of flamenco dancing where the feminine is embraced by the masculine body and gender roles are broken—exposing dramatic new forms.

Gala Flamenca

Mercedes Ruiz
Eduardo Guerrero
María Moreno
and guest artist María Terremoto
Apr 23 & 24 Sat 8pm, Sun 3pm
Approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with no intermission

“A showcase of flamenco in all its flavors”
The Boston Globe

An all-star display of the range and vibrancy of flamenco dancing, Gala Flamenca has long been the centerpiece of Flamenco Festival. This year’s Gala features Mercedes Ruiz, praised for her “commanding truth and virtuosity” (Financial Times, UK), Eduardo Guerrero, known for his “marvelously eccentric solos” (The New York Times), and María Moreno, whose performance pays tribute to the traditional style of Cádiz. These exceptional artists are joined by a collection of musicians and special guest singer María Terremoto—a rising star and the youngest artist to receive the Giraldillo Award for New Artists at the Seville Flamenco Biennial.
