Flamenco Dance at Sadler's Wells
Opening the festival is Compañía María Pagés, whose outstanding dancers are renowned for their vibrant, colourful performances - the perfect introduction to flamenco, as well as as a treat for aficionados.
Los Farruco, the royals of the flamenco world, present a truly authentic display of gypsy flamenco - mixing song with acrobatic turns and fast, furious footwork.
Other highlights include modern flamenco dance from Rafaela Carrasco and the avant-guarde Israel Galván; a show dedicated to great women of flamenco Mujeres; concerts by new star Concha Buika and traditional singers Carmen Linares and Miguel Poveda; and a celebration of gypsy flamenco from Andalucía, Viva Jerez!
