SCPA Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca: Antigona
April 24, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm MST
Under the direction of Martín Santangelo, the award-winning Noche Flamenca has become Spain’s most successful touring dance company. Formed in 1993 by Santangelo and his Bessie award-winning wife, Soledad Barrio, the company regularly tours throughout the globe and has been hailed for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances. Antigona is an evening-length theatrical flamenco interpretation of the text and themes in Sophocles’ classic story of strength and sacrifice.
On Saturday, 7:30 pm, Noche Flamenca Artistic Director Martin Santangelo will give a pre-show talk about his company’s performance of Antigona.
“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 current ballet star in the world as marvelous as she.”
– Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
“Soledad Barrio is a gift to flamenco and the troupe a testament to the art’s underlying relevance.”
– Dance Magazine
