Flamenco in Granada - 8/25 to 8/28/16

We always enjoy the talented flamenco dancers and musicians.
Is Maria Bentos dancing in Granada and if so, where?

Reviewed Flamencotickets.com shows in Granada.
Like gypsy flamenco dancers in the caves.
We were in Granada about 10 years ago and saw two wonderful shows.

Any recommendations for good/great shows?
Gracias.

See if you can get a ticket for "Lorca y Granada" with the Ballett Flamenco de Andalucía up in the spectacular outdoor theater in the Generalife gardens. 30 performances, from July 19th to August 27th. Mondays to Saturdays, at 22:00 pm. http://www.juntadeandalucia.es/cultura/lorcaygranada/en

Only top of the shelf local artists every night in Casa del Arte Flamenco. Changing artists all the time. No food, no drinks, just real deal flamenco for some 60 minutes. Young Alba Heredia won the super prestigious Premio desplante last year and she dances here every now and then: http://www.casadelarteflamenco.com/g...-flamenco-show

And you have of course the Thursday night performances in legendary Peña Platería in the Albayzín quarter. http://www.laplateria.org.es/
Then you might experience thins like this:

The above mentioned Alba Granada: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGhyLLfylOM
Wonderful Diana Navarro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgPrfjinEgQ

I don't know of any Maria Bentos.

Granada:
Concert "Lorca y Granada
It was a spectacular venue and show, so many dancers.
Rafaela Carrasco was the choreographer as well as dancer.

Mayte Martin was of the cantors. Beautiful voice.

And info about Lorca:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fede...c%C3%ADa_Lorca

Saw Maria Castanera flamenco show in a cave.
A welcoming family flamenco gathering type of feeling.

In Plaza Nueva, "free" flamenco shows at night. The audience so receptive and appreciative of the shows.

It's so nice to see all types of flamenco venues.
They put so many years of training to perform for us to enjoy.

Thanks again, Kimhe.
Lorca y Granada was a sight to see.
