SEVILLE FLAMENCO--Which night to attend?

I hope that the aficiondos here (Kimhe, Amsdon..etc) will offer some advice that will help me select a night to attend the Casa de la Memoria in Sevilla.

I will be in the city from the 25th through the 30th; all things being equal, I'd prefer not to plan for Sunday the 28th, since I will take a trip to Cordoba that day. (But will go if that night's peformance will be special..)

Here are the choices; what do the names in capital letters, next to the date, signify?


Jueves 25: CAMPALLERÍA
Bailaora: Adela Campallo
Bailaor: Rafael Campallo
Cantaor: Javier Rivera
Guitarrista: Pedro Sánchez

Viernes 26: LA SEGUIRIYA
Bailaora: Marta Arias
Bailaor: Juan Carlos Cardoso
Cantaor: Vicente Gelo
Guitarrista: Manuel de la Luz

Sábado 27: FRAGUA FLAMENCA
Bailaora: Manuela Ríos
Bailaor: David Pérez
Cantaor: Jeromo Segura
Guitarrista: Jorge Flores

Domingo 28: RAÍCES FLAMENCAS
Bailaora: Pastora Galván
Bailaor: Antonio Molina "Choro"
Cantaor: Jesús Corbacho
Guitarrista: Pedro Sánchez

Lunes 29: LA SEGUIRIYA
Bailaora: Marta Arias
Bailaor: Juan Carlos Cardoso
Cantaora: Ana Real
Guitarrista: Tino

Martes 30: JONDO
Bailaora: Maribel Ramos "Zambra"
Cantaor: Vicente Gelo
Guitarrista: Raúl Cantizano


Many thanks!!!

I did a bit of reading and from what I found, the Sunday program sounds excellent!

On second thought, after posting the first time, I realize that I would not have a problem attending on Sunday after returning from Cordoba.

I am now on an iPad and cannot access their site..are shows daily at 9pm?

Can I wait to buy tix 2 or 3 days ahead, or can I buy these online today? Address?.

Many thanks!,

I can't really help you with what you should do, I have only listened to it a bit for cultural reasons and to hear it, but don't really like flamenco singing, to be honest. It gives me a headache and all sounds pretty much alike.

However, I know those names are different styles of flamenco singing (jondo, fragua, etc) so what you personally would prefer could depend, if you really want to go to the trouble, you can probably google and hear some on Youtube or something of the various styles. I know some of those words in Spanish but don't know the distinctions or if you could personally tell them apart.

I stayed right near that place although I went elsewhere for a flmenco show (scheduling, I guess). They do have shows at 9 pm always, but sometimes they also have shows at 7:30 and 22:30, although they don't list any times for those dates.

I don't even know if you can buy tickets online, actually, I don't see any link to do that. I think you may have to get them once there.
