The Flamenco show From Triana to Granada will grace the stage of the Opera House at Artscape for three performances in June.
The production showcases the talent of eight young artists of the Foundation Cristina Heeren of Flamenco Art from Seville.
Brought to South Africa by the Consulate of Spain and Artscape, with the support of the Cristina Heeren Foundation of Flamenco Art and the Embassy of Spain in Pretoria, the production is directed by flamenco dancer and choreographer Luisa Palicio.
The show highlights several different choreographies and styles of Flamenco.
Patrons will witness the talents of two guitarists, Pablo Fernández and Emiliano Litri; two singers, Marian Fernández and África Granado; and four bailaores (dancers), Irene Rueda, Araceli Muñoz, Lucia Fernández and Juanjo Ortega.
The company will perform three shows in Cape Town; one on Friday 3 June and two on Saturday 4 June.
During the première on Friday, tribute will be paid to the late Carolyn Holden, choreographer and pioneer in the promotion of Flamenco dance in South Africa.
Tickets range in price from R250 to R450.
