Paco Peña creates the perfect blend using flawless flamenco and fine aging.


What can be created when young flamenco dancers and the expertise of older artists come together? That is exactly what world-renowned flamenco guitarist Paco Peña will show you in Solera.

Enter their rehearsal room as they explore the genre together and then take to the stage with a unique performance that is both quiet and celebratory, soulful and full of life.

Flamenco is not a written tradition but one handed down from one generation to the next. The best performances incorporate part of what has been created before by the great practitioners of the past as well as the vibrancy and innovation of young dancers.

Peña’s passionate work, created with long-term collaborator, director Jude Kelly, debuted at Sadler’s Wells in 2022. Solera is an exploration of artistic wisdom and the fearlessness of youth in the search for new expression.
