Description: Hailed by critics for their transcendent and deeply emotional performances, Spain’s Noche Flamenca is recognized as the most authentic flamenco company in the field today. Artistic Director Martin Santangelo and his wife, Soledad Barrio, bring to the stage the essence of one of the world’s most complex and mysterious art forms.“There has been no company I have been so glad to discover as Noche Flamenca and, above all, its lead dancer, Soledad Barrio,” proclaims Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times. “I can think of no current ballet star in the world as marvelous as she.”

“No matter how many times you’ve seen Ms. Barrio dance, the experience is strangely intimate; there’s something voyeuristic and cathartic about watching a woman pry open her soul, scatter it on the
floor and put it back together again.” -The New York Times
