Barcelona - Flamenco shows (2nd try)

Hi

I don't know what happened to the first post but anyhow I'll try again!

We'll be in Barcelona in May and I would like to take my wife to a flamenco show for her birthday.

I found this one - El Tablao de Carmen URL: http://www.tablaodecarmen.com/

Three questions

1. Is this a good one i.e fairly authentic?

2. Do I need to book well in advance or will booking the night before suffice?

3. Any other suggestions for flamenco shows - with or without dinner?

Thanks for your help

Flamenco is best when seen in the south, Sevilla comes to mind, as well as Cadiz and Jerez. We also saw a great Flamenco opera in Paris in late December, but Barcelona, well, I'm not too sure. Maybe someone else can offer you some enlightenment.

Three summers ago, we attended the Tablao Flamenco Cordobes, recommended by our hotel in Barcelona. The show was very enjoyable (can't compare to Seville and others since we haven't travelled in the south). The address is Ramblas, 35 08002 Barcelona. Telephone: 34-93 317 57 11

I would recommend this venue. Reservations are required.

Cheers,

I agree with Robert, you have to go to Andalucia or to Madrid to see flamenco.

It's ridiculous to go to the "tablao cordobés" in Barcelona, "cordobés", do you understand?, means from Córdoba, in Andalucia.

In Barcelona there are flamenco shows, but just for tourist, not authencic flamenco, although you probably enjoy the show, it's not a good idea to go to see flamenco in Barcelona.

Lighten up, Laura! Admittedly, the flamenco in Barcelona is not the same as that in southern Spain---but if one is not going to the south, it is certainly better than nothing (we actually enjoyed the show we saw). As travelers, we often have to make the best with what we have.

Regards,
