UK PREMIERE 

The flamenco superstar Sara Baras makes a welcome return to London with her latest intoxicating flamenco spectacle, Sombras.

 Acclaimed for her charismatic stage presence and floor-pummelling footwork, Baras draws on a dance thread that has woven its way through her career, as she celebrates the 20th anniversary of her company. La Farruca, with its dramatic fast-footwork, is usually reserved for men. Performing alongside six dancers and accompanied by seven musicians, Baras, “a woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane” (The Guardian), claims La Farruca as her own.

★★★★★ "Exceptional. A completely convincing display of first-rate dance and sheer star power"
THE TIMES

★★★★ "You only need to look to the festival’s opening diva, Sara Baras, to see how it’s done"
THE GUARDIAN

★★★★★ "Can this edition of the Flamenco Festival get any better?"
THE TIMES

★★★★ "A feast of explosive energy and subtle artistry. You’re struck by her sheer energy, hooked by the machine-gun drum of heels hitting the floor"
