We went to a weekend show, and they have parking arranged in the lot across the street from the Ritz Theater. Follow to the signs through the first lot to the back lot.

This was the first time I have seen a whole Flamenco performance. I was blown away. I only wish I would have seen Friday nights so I could have had the opportunity to go again. I hope to see more performances like this in the future.

Quotes & Highlights

Visit’s the websites of Yaelisa and Nelida Tirado.


As an art form, Flamenco uniquely interprets womanhood.  Through music and dance it comments on the nuances of women’s expressions at each stage of the women’s lives.  Flamenco celebrates both the mythic symbolism and the reality of womankind.

Zorongo Flamenco invites you to witness a profound, soul-pounding commentary on feminine power.  The stirring combination of Susana di Palma’s experienced wisdom and sensuality, Yaelisa’s ripe virtuosity, and Nelida Tirado’s youthful, magnetic energy promise to carry audiences to an imaginary plane seldom experienced outside flamenco’s Andalusian birthplace.   Flamenco master guitarists Pedro Cortes and Jason McGuire and emotional, authentic cantaor singer Oscar Valero will enhance the trio of dancers.

Susana di Palma: *Susana__ di Palma’s sense of defiance is ferocious, enigmatic, poignant…”
— Seattle Times__.  She__ __spent decades studying all aspects of the art of flamenco in Spain. Influenced by her work with maestros such as Enrique “El Cojo”, Carmen Mora, Manolete, Manolo Marin, Merche Esmeralda and “new generation” dancer, Rafaela Carrasco, and dancing in tablaos in Madrid, festivals throughout Spain, and in dance companies such as La Singla, Rafael de Cordoba and Maria Benitez’ Estampa Flamenca, her performance and choreographic skills exude the flamenco tradition’s essence.  Although a critically acclaimed flamenco soloist, di Palma’s unique contributions to her art form are her provocative, original theater/flamenco works that respond to our contemporary world.

Yaelisa:* *Known as one of the most gifted flamenco artists of her generation, the exquisite passion of Yaelisa’s performances has captured the attention of critics around the world.  The Los Angeles Times called her a “luminary” among flamenco dancers for her extraordinary rhythmic ability, which radiates nothing less than pure emotion infused with sensuality.  Raised by her Spanish mother (also a flamenco performer) the rhythms, gestures and vocal laments of the art’s purest form surrounded Yaelisa from birth. She is the director and creator of New World Flamenco Festival and won an Emmy Award for Choreography for her PBS program, Desde Cadiz a Sevilla.

Nelida Tirado:* *Recently hailed as “magnificent” by the __New York Times, Tirado __is known for her intense grace, and powerful style. Her performances have attracted the attention of other dancers—-critics and non-dancers alike—- to single her out repeatedly in her appearances at the Joyce Theater, Jacob’s Pillow, Lincoln Center, and Symphony Space. Currently residing in NYC, Tirado was recently awarded a grant from Harlem Stage’s Fund for New Work.  She received the 2007 BRIO award for artistic excellence from Bronx Council of the Arts and was featured as Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” 2007.

This stellar ensemble, representing three generations of superb flamencas will offer a unique opportunity for Twin Cities’ audiences to experience an art form at its apex.
