10th Annual Boston Flamenco Festival – Hosting International Stars at The Cutler Majestic Theatre (Feb. 13th, 14th, & 15th – All Weekend)
The first of two shows which comprise this year’s festival is the Boston premiere of La Puerta Abierta (The Open Door) and features the flamenco artistry of Isabel Bayon of Spain. She is a longtime dance favorite with a performance career of more than 30 years. She will be accompanied, in part, by Spanish vocalist Terremoto, an icon in the world of cante flamenco. This show is for one performance only, on Friday evening.
The second show is by Noche Flamenco of Madrid, currently considered to be the premiere touring dance company from Spain. Soledad Barrio, it’s lead dancer and co-founder who has won numerous international awards, is haled as one of the greatest ballet/flamenco dancers of all time. The troupe will perform on Saturday and Sunday evenings, as well as a matinee on Sunday.
Tickets are $65.00, $50.00, and $40.00. The Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 8:00, the Sunday matinee at 2:00, and the final performance on Sunday evening at 7:00. However, one hour before each show, there will be a lecture given by dance critic Debra Cash. Here are further concert details as well as a map of the neighborhood, including restaurant locations.
