“Their technique is perfect, their physical beauty shaming, their passion irresistible."

Experience the fiery passion and luscious colours of flamenco and Spanish dance in a triple bill by Ballet Nacional de España. The award-winning company brings you its 36 stellar dancers, eight guitarists and singers in performances choreographed by Spain’s foremost artists.

Danza y Tronío, a grand classic that reveals the influence of Escuela Bolera or Spanish dance of 18th and 19th centuries in classical ballet, was choreographed by Mariemma, the “first lady of Spanish dance” and a major force in defining Spanish dance.

Fernando Romero’s Caprichos presents a personal and abstract vision which paints elegant portraits of modern flamenco, through breathtaking solos, duets and ensembles. Cambalache by Antonio Canales encapsulates the exchange of styles, cultures and ancestral feelings that shape what is now known as flamenco, evoking the aromas, essences and softness of silk from the Mediterranean routes.

The Ballet Nacional de España is acclaimed around the world for its spectacular productions and dazzling showmanship. Their impeccable footwork, gorgeous costumes and dramatic sounds of castanets and syncopated clapping all promise a captivating evening of Spanish artistry.
