Flamenco recommendations for specific dates

Although I have an idea of where to go to see flamenco, I don't know which artists to see. I'm looking for specific recommendations for my dates: Seville April 2-6; Nerja April 7-9; Granada April 10-12; Toledo April 13-14; and Madrid April 15-17.

We're staying in Plaza de Santa Cruz in Seville. Is Los Gallos recommended?

Thanks so much!

First, I would recommend to see María Pagés in Teatros del Canal in Madrid. She dances here every night April 7-24. She's one of the absolute greatest the past twenty plus years and still on top:

Los Gallos now stages fabulous dancers Rosario Toledo, Rafael Campallo and Mercedes de Cordoba.

But you might also consider these three places in Sevilla, just plain fantastic artists here also, and no drinks, no food, only flamenco and less than half the price of Los Gallos and the other tablaos (flamenco restaurants):

In Granada, Casa del Arte Flamenca opened just last year, and they stage some of the finest flamenco artists in town: http://www.casadelarteflamenco.com/

And all kinds of flamenco performances in Sevilla, Granada and Madrid are updated here, but the programs for April are not posted yet. From small clubs to grand theaters.

In Nerja, there used to be a small and wonderful paña/flamenco club called La Soleá, but it has moved, and nowadays it's low activity. But there are frequent flamenco performances in the fine Centro Cultural theater. Had one of my best flamenco nights ever here back in 2004.
