Celebrate the purity, essence, and drama of one of the world's most expressive art forms as flamenco returns to Cal Performances. Founded in Madrid in 1993 by director Martín Santangelo and his wife Soledad Barrio, Noche Flamenca has won wide renown for its transcendent performances and tops the list of today's most authentic flamenco ensembles. Lead dancer Barrio has won more than a dozen international awards for excellence in dance and is considered one of the greatest performers of our time. "There has been no company I have been so glad to discover as Noche Flamenca and, above all, its lead dancer, Soledad Barrio. I can think of no other current ballet dancer in the world as marvelous as she" (New York Times).
