Essential Flamenco - Essential Flamenco

About the Show

Essential Flamenco is held in Sala Torero in La Calle de la Cruz in Madrid, just a few minutes from the Puerta del Sol and the famous Plaza Mayor. The venue holds nightly flamenco shows and the performances - featuring flamenco dance, singing, guitar and percussion - give the spectator an authentic show at a reasonable price. The production lasts 60 minutes and is directed by the renowned dancer La Mistela, who has received the National Flamenco Award.

Essential Flamenco takes the viewer on a journey to the roots of flamenco: from its inception, flamenco has flourished in intimate settings. Artists danced and sang before a small group of friends without any amplification or microphones. The spots were often cellars and caves made from bricks, which offered excellent natural acoustics. It is in this spirit that La Mistela has created  authentic and genuine show consisiting of two dancers, a singer, guitarist, violinist and percussionist.

La Mistela is a well known dancer who was once received the highest compliment from el Farruco (another famous dancer) when he said "You are like mistela (a typical sweet wine from Andalucia), sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, but always with feeling and emotion". Honored with the National Critics Flamenco Award, La Mistela has performed in Tokyo, Paris, Rome and Seville. He served as the principal dancer in the production of Carmen with Salvador Távora as well as El Amor Brujo, with Mario Maya. His artistic direction of the show ensures a quality performance. The cast consists of Juan El Mistela and Rocío Martín González (dancers), Miguel El Rubio (singer) Camarón de Pitita (guitar), Fernando García Rico (violin) and Lucky Losada (percussion).

The two stages are protected by methacrylate screens and there are air extractors which constantly renew the air in the venue.
