UK PREMIERE 

The master of flamenco brings a blast of Spain to London this summer, as Paco Peña returns to Sadler's Wells. A legendary guitarist, composer, dramatist and producer, Peña's work over the past five decades has dazzled audiences across the globe and earned him exceptional critical acclaim.  Making its UK premiere at Sadler's Wells, Flamencura is an electrifying showcase of incredible flamenco talent, featuring a cast of three dancers and six musicians.

***** "An exceptional evening, elegant yet imbued with force. Excellent, all of it”
The Times

Reconnecting with the sublime emotional essence and heritage of flamenco, Flamencura presents ten dance pieces – a mix of solos, duets, ensembles and musical numbers – ranging from choreographies inspired by the Spanish folk traditions to cutting-edge contemporary takes on flamenco.

Art in all its forms has the ability to transport performer and audience to a mysterious level of emotions; a red-hot status capable of immersing the audience into an indescribable experience. Flamencura celebrates that elusive state through a combination of each performer's interpretation of the flamenco spirit, leading to a spectacular show you're unlikely to ever forget. 

London Flamenco Festival star Ángel Múñoz returns to captivate audiences with his lightning footwork and sublime sensual rhythms, while Charo Espino and Carmen Rivas complete the trio of dancers with their own masterful movement. Accompanied by the "breathtakingly beautiful" (Daily Telegraph) guitar play of Peña and his musicians, don't miss this spectacle of pure artistry, passion, virtuoso dance performances and irresistible pleasure.
