Though it may be a 'tale as old as time,' Inland Pacific Ballet has found a way to make Beauty and the Beast terrifically new in its dazzling original adaptation of the fabled story. When her father is abducted after picking a rose from the garden of the mysterious Beast, Beauty offers herself in exchange for her parent's safety. Thus begins a journey of love and transformation for both herself and the Beast. Featuring a score of classical masters including Dvorak, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn, Beauty and the Beast also features spectacular sets, stunning costumes and amazing theatrical effects. The addition of sublime choreography makes this ballet a feast for the senses, one to be savored long after the lights come up. Learn More

I have seen many a Flamenco show, and have even seen the National Spanish Ballet in Madrid, but never had I seen Flamenco done with real Gipsy/Gitano flare... the speed of their footwork, the drama, the vocalization of the singers, the theatrics of it all, as authentic as the gipsies found dancing in the caves of the South of Spain. Simply superb. A visual banquet. Thank you UCLA and Spain's Ministry of Tourism.
Quotes & Highlights
“This is raw flamenco, full of power, fire and unbridled masculinity.” — The Daily Telegraph
Featuring Farruco, La Farruca, Barullo and La Faraona
Renowned for its dazzling footwork, powerful athleticism and passionate intensity, the legendary flamenco family, Los Farruco, features three generations of dancers- all direct descendents of their late patriarch and flamenco master, El Farruco. Led by his twenty-year-old grandson, Farruco, who is rapidly gaining a reputation for his fiery and virtuosic performances, the Farruco clan also includes El Farruco’s daughters, the highly respected La Farruca and La Faraona, and second grandson, the elegantly reserved Barullo. Accompanied by two guitarists and three singers, Los Farruco promises a mesmerizing evening of traditional gypsy dance and music.
