Behind a fringed curtain, Sara Baras stands in a long patterned dress.

Sara Baras’ unbridled energy and ferocious technique will tell you everything you need to know about the dance culture bursting from the very soul of Spain.

Increasingly in flamenco, it’s the women who wear the trousers

Heels pound, skirts fly and hands trace the air. Lavishly costumed and performed with an explosive live band, we guarantee Alma will leave you feeling more alive.

Alma’s ensemble cast fuse flamenco and bolero. Baras pays respect to flamenco’s techniques (siguiriya, soleá, caña, rumba and buleria) while fusing it with her own modern touch, brilliant footwork, and captivating stage presence. You don’t need to know what the words mean, you just need to feel it.

Alma promises to be an exhilarating evening with the “Flamenco queen” herself.

A living legend in the flamenco world, Sara Baras has spent the past 30 years building an internationally lauded career as a dancer, director, and choreographer. Winner of the 2020 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance—as well as a slew of Spain’s highest dance honors—Baras returns to Sadler’s Wells for the first time since her acclaimed work Sombras in 2019
