Gala de Andalucia

“A fistful of Spain’s greatest dancers colluding in a foot-stomping, shawl-swirling, castanet-clicking party” — The Stage (UK)

Gala de Andalucía has long been the centerpiece of Flamenco Festival, bringing together exceptional dancers and singers in an evening that demonstrates the range and vibrancy of flamenco. In honor of Flamenco Festival’s 20th Anniversary Season, this year’s very special Gala de Andalucia presentation features Eduardo Guerrero, known for his “marvelously eccentric solos” (The New York Times); María Moreno whose astonishing dance pays tribute to the traditional style of Cádiz, Mercedes Ruiz, lauded for her “commanding truth and virtuosity” (Financial Times); and rising singer Maria Terremoto, the youngest artist ever to receive the Giraldillo Award for New Artist at the Seville Flamenco Biennial. These remarkable dancers are joined on stage by a cadre of musicians and a special guest artist: La Chana, a 1960s-80s legend who vanished from the public eye at the height of her career.
