Description

The New World Flamenco Festival has ordered up a big new show that will be rehearsed in Spain and presented in its world premiere. _Somos Flamencos _celebrates flamenco’s most treasured traditions of improvisation and spontaneity among its dancers, singers and guitarists. Yaelisa, the Festival’s artistic director, is guest-directing this extraordinary ensemble of Spain’s top dancers, musicians and singers.

The run has been extended to five nights of vibrant dance, majestic cante, and soulful guitar.
