Directed by Manuel Liñan, the Flamenca Gala builds a dialogue between artists as a showcase for the best of jondo art. This annual call brings together on stage three dancers who undoubtedly lead the current flamenco scene. Jerez-born Mercedes Ruiz is a reference within her generation for revaluing the flamenco dance tradition. The bailaora speaks of flamenco from the absolute truth and with an impressive virtuosity (Financial Times). Eduardo Guerrero, wonderfully extravagant (The New York Times), stands out for his refined technique, a deep knowledge of flamenco and a captivating charisma that confers him the status of prodigy of flamenco. Like Eduardo, María Moreno was attached to the Eva Yerbabuena Company for years, before beginning her solo career. Freshness, self-confidence, warmth and grace (Diario de Sevilla), are some of the attributes that de fine María. The bailaora pays tribute to the traditional style of her city, Cádiz, adding her own stamp full of expressiveness, originality and passion. For this special occasion, the three bailaores will be surrounded by a group of exceptional musicians and singers, including the young star María Terremoto; or guitarist Santiago Lara.
