Get swept away with an exciting night of flamenco music and dance as The Flamenco Society of San Jose presents A Taste of Spain. A cast of some of the Bay Area's best flamenco artists will showcase this vibrant genre, which combines singing, guitar playing, dance and handclaps. Originating in Andalusia in southern Spain, this energetic and passionate style evolved out of the melting pot of the region's many cultures and is mostly credited to its Romani population. An improvisational form, flamenco brings together a singer, guitarist and dancer, who respond to and shape each other's performances. The result is an electrifying display of artistic expression.

All the beauty, humor, adventure and tragedy of the frightening urgency of youth is danced to the brilliant and emotive score of Sergei Prokofiev, performed live by the Ballet Orchestra. David Guthrie’s elaborate and sumptuous sets and costumes, and Kenneth Keith’s dramatic use of light and shadow recreate the charm and danger of old Verona where star-crossed lovers are broken apart by their feuding families. Dennis Nahat’s theatrically intimate choreography grips the senses and compels us to believe again in love at first sight. This is Ballet on a grand scale with forty-five dancers, full symphony orchestra and three-acts of glorious spectacle featuring lavish masked balls, electrifying sword-fights, and secret rendezvous culminating in one of the most moving tragedies in stage history. Ballet San Jose proves that love needs no words.
