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.

Pastora Galván, voted best female flamenco dancer by Spanish critics 2009:
Fuensanta La Moneta, voted best female flamenco dancer by Spanish critics 2010:
Olga Pericet, voted best female flamenco dancer by Spanish critics 2010:
Rising star Patricia Guerrero:
Farru, younger up and coming brother of fantastic Farruquito. For the past two years Farru has toured with flamenco guitar legend Paco de Lucía, one of the greatest guitarist in the world regardless of genre. Farru and Paco:
Marco Flores made his definitive breakthrough at this years festival in Jerez. Voted best performance in this most prestigious flamenco dance festival:
El Junco is one of my absolute favourites:

Needless to say, these dancers are accompanied by world class singers and musicians.

Detailed program:

Close to legend Maria Pagés dances "Utopia" in Teatre Victòria from Sept 19 to 29.

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:
"one of the finest soloists in the world today" (New York Times).
"Molina has genius: irresistible, all-consuming, all-powerful." (Financial Times).
National Dance Prize winner 2010, voted best female flamenco dancer 2007 and 2008.

--- and I have to add that the leading flamenco singer on the current scene, Miguel Poveda, sings in El Liceo on Las Ramblas in his native Barcelona (he's from Badalona 2 km outside Barcelona) on December 23rd. Togeher with wonderful dancer "La Lupi":
