More About Flamenco Abierto

If you’ve never been to a Flamenco Abierto night what should you expect? The very highest quality flamenco dance, song and guitar work – that’s a given. But it’s much more than that.

What makes it so special – bordering on the unique – is the format. It’s not ‘for the tourists’ – it’s not even really a ‘show’ in the conventional sense of the word. There’s no stage, for starters. The seats are tightly grouped around the artists. So you’re right there, in the midst of the performance. And as a result, you can see every sinew strain, every bead of sweat, every neck bulge and every string reverberate. You, the audience, are a part of it.

It’s a visceral experience. Passionate, joyful, exciting, deeply moving – it’s impossible to come away unaffected.
