La Pasión Flamenca

Photo by Lois Greenfield

Hailed by The New York Times for its "spirited dancing and imaginative choreographic concepts," Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana will spotlight dances that show how flamenco has evolved in different countries, from Spain and Argentina to Colombia and Cuba on Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Sun Valley Opera House. "La Pasíon Flamenca," is a fierce and eclectic evening of Spanish dance and music featuring lamenting solos, sizzling duets and a rousing full-company finale. Flamenco Vivo's performances are "an infectious joyful celebration of music and dance," wrote Jennifer Dunning, dance critic for The New York Times.
