Flamenco Night at Tablao Cordobes
Feel the passion of the flamenco at Barcelona's legendary Torres Cordobes, where some of the greatest names in flamenco have performed. Entertained by an internationally renowned flamenco group, you'll discover why the traditional dance of Spain is so popular. You'll also have the option of dining on a traditional buffet meal or simply ordering a drink to enjoy while watching the show.
The flamenco show reveals the variety of music, singing and dancing incorporated in this passionate art form. Improvisation is a key element of flamenco, with each artist individually interpreting the rhythm and communicating the beat to the other players. Communication between the artists and audience is also an important part of the performance.
