Festival de Flamenco|Third Row Live (Today Sat Jan 30)
Posted On January 30, 2021
Uncork a bottle of sherry, dust off your sense of adventure, and join Third Row for a festival of music and dance set in the foothills of Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains. The afternoon begins with Variación a Tempo, the newest award-winning work by Sara Jimenez and Pablo Gimenez, broadcast live from Teatro Mira Amescua in Guadix. The exquisitely choreographed piece chronicles the evolution of Spanish music and dance, linking the classical traditions’ influence on the more modern genre, flamenco.
You can then retreat to the olive groves of Almazara de Paulenca for an intimate performance broadcast live from a rustic, family-owned olive mill. Against a backdrop of hand-hewn timbers and terracotta tiles, guitarist Pablo Giménez leads a Granada based ensemble which features dancers Rocío Montoya, of Riverdance acclaim, and Jasiel Nahim. This will remind us that nothing, not even a pandemic, can temper the passion of authentic Flamenco.
These are two different performances both taking place today Saturday January 30th.
The first Variación a Tempo starts at 3:00 pm ET; the second Fiesta Flamenca starts at 9:00 pm ET. Tickets are $15 USD for each show. For further information and for tickets visit Third Row
