This is a "must see" show! I have been a fan of Carlos Saura's films (especially his flamenco trilogy that started with "Bodas de Sangre") and he brings his creative vision and passion for Flamenco music, dance and singing to this inspired production with some of the most incredibly talented performers I have seen in a while. The title of the show gives you a hint that this will not just be traditional Flamenco, though there is plenty of that and the genre's historical influences -- but the jazz fusions are a joy to experience! Catch this show before it leaves NYC!
