Flamenco Hoy Performance at the New York City Media Center

Why travel more than 3,000 miles to Seville, Spain to see a Flamenco performance when you can see one in New York City? Save yourself the $700 airplane ticket and spend anywhere from $35 to $85 to watch it at the New York City Media Center.

A friend saw Flamenco Hoy this past week and highly recommends it for people who want to change up their routine and do something different. However, you only have until this Sunday to watch it before it moves on to another city!

Not sure what Flamenco is? Flamenco is a style of music and dance which is native to several regions of southern Spain. Flamenco is popularly depicted as being the music of Andulusian gitanos (gypsies) but historically its roots are in mainstream Andalusian society. Below is a youtube video of the Flamenco Hoy performance.

Flamenco Hoy, directed by celebrated film director Carlos Saura, is a spectacular showcase of flamenco with breathtaking dance, dynamic music, and soul-searing cante (song). Featuring twenty of Spain's most exciting artists from the new generation of flamenco, dramatic choreography by Rafael Estévez and Nani Paños, and musical direction by the electrifying pianist Chano Domínguez, this dazzling show takes the audience into the heart of Andalusian flamenco today.

The show runs for 2 hours and 10 minutes, with one 15 minute intermission.

Remaining Showtimes: Friday @ 8 pm ; Saturday @ 2 pm or 8 pm or Sunday @ 2 pm or 7 pm!
