The terrace seats in the Lisner Auditorium are horrible! I left early because the are so crowded on leg room. I'm 5'7" tall and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of my. It was worse than a 16 hour coach flight. Ppl were up and down because they were uncomfortable. It was hard to enjoy the show in such misery.

Description

Eva Yerbabuena is famed for her speed, power and dramatic footwork. Inspired by poetry, this show presents the flamenco superstar at her most elegant, emotive best. Accompanied by four dancers and her critically acclaimed ensemble of musicians she delivers an unforgettable tour de force performance, which has left Spanish audiences in raptures. Yerbabuena says that “Lluvia” (Rain) is “born on a gray day of pure melancholy,” and in it she has endeavored to explore her beginnings.  She predicts that some people who believe they know her will feel a little uncomfortable although “Lluvia” reflects who really she is, her essence.  This work “is a tribute to melancholy and coldness, to being alive, to the endlessness of life”.
