Top flamenco in Barcelona this fall - every night!

Jump to last reply

Barcelona will be full of the greatest flamenco dancers every night from now until the beginning of January. Tablao Cordobés has contracted "'The Aristocracy of Flamenco" from September 9th to January 6th 2013. Changing program all the time, but there will be at least one major star dancer performing every night. In addition, cutting edge flamenco dance geniouses María Pagés and Rocío Molina stages their latest works in Barcelona theaters in September and October.

Last, but definitely not least, Rocío Molina in Mercat de les Flors up at Montjuic on October 20 and 21. The absolute highlight in my eyes: http://vimeo.com/37918925
