More information about Flamenco Festival

This year marks the 400th year since the death of Spanish poet and musician Vicente Espinel, said to have invented the Spanish guitar, and the 10th year since the death of Paco de Lucía, the legendary guitarist who made its sound ubiquitous with flamenco culture. This year’s Flamenco Festival pays tribute to his legacy and the importance of the Spanish guitar.

National Ballet of Spain

The internationally acclaimed National Ballet of Spain (Ballet Nacional de España) takes the City Center stage by storm in Invocación, an epic event for 38 dancers. A fusion of Spanish choreography and heritage led by director Rubén Olmo, Invocación celebrates the rich diversity of Spanish dance, including styles from flamenco to escuela bolera. It also includes a tribute to the great dancer and choreographer Mario Maya, one of the creators of the Andalusian Flamenco Theater.

Olga Pericet

Premio Nacional de Danza winner Olga Pericet commands the stage in her stunning solo La Leona. For one night only, Pericet embodies both meanings of La Leona—the lioness and the flamenco guitar of Antonio De Torres—in a witty, avant-garde deconstruction and celebration of traditional flamenco music and choreography.

Please note, La Leona includes partial nudity.

Gala Flamenca

A festival within a festival, __Gala Flamenca __presents four incredible flamenco dancers in one program, accompanied by the versatile vocalist Sandra Carrasco. Manuel Liñán returns to City Center after the 2022 roaring success, ¡VIVA! He is joined by celebrated flamenco artist Alfonso Losa, who brings decades of multi-disciplinary talent to the stage. The sizzling El Yiyo (Miguel Fernández Ribas) brings his infectious energy to the event and dazzling soloist Paula Comitre, one of flamenco’s brightest rising stars, lends her talents to complete this flamenco extravaganza in a program you won’t want to miss.

What to watch for

Flamenco Festival: Mar 8 – 17 at New York City Center

Flamenco refers to a form of song (cante) and dance (baile) that originated in Southern Spain hundreds of years ago.

Duende flamenco is a state of transcendence in which a flamenco performer fills the stage with their presence. Duende can move audiences to experience an indescribable, almost overwhelming response. 

The Spanish Guitar, also known as the baroque guitar, is a five-string guitar that is a fundamental emblem of flamenco. The legendary flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía popularized its distinct sound in modern day.
