The whole thing is only an hour so park across the street and not in the parking structure, where you have to pay $10..

The weather was cool. I wore jeans and a nice top. It was very warm inside the theater, almost too hot in the balcony section..

Masterful playing, footwork and history are not enough to carry three hours of repetitious bravado, a tempo better suited for cantinas or plazas; what this misses in translation for theatre is choreography and variation.

Quotes & Highlights

“Among the many reasons to like the Irvine Barclay’s New World Flamenco Festival is just how darm well flamenco’s many flavors and facets are presented to the audience — easily digested by connaisseur and novice alike.” —Orange County Register

Description

The largest ensemble ever presented by the festival, 14 stellar dancers, musicians and singers have been gathered from the U.S. and Spain. In the gypsy tradition of improvisation and inspiration, the ensemble will perform with different soloists being featured. With a cast this large, you can expect the fin de fiesta, the joyous finale of the show, to be full of fireworks.
