Description

Celebrate an early start to your summer weekend on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at Ballet Hispánico’s Flamenco Tablao featuring Maria de los Angeles! Enjoy the ambience of a New York City Tablao nightclub in Ballet Hispánico’s Penthouse Studio for an evening of live music and intimate performances by seasoned professionals, emerging artists, and aspiring students.

Choose the Tablao experience you desire at one of our two shows: the 7:00PM set will feature the classic cuadro with dancing, singing and guitar to explore the most traditional aspects of the art form and the 8:30PM set will feature a contemporary spin to the traditional Tablao allowing for new modes of interpretation by offering a 21st century lens on this 200 year-old art form.
Take advantage of our premier ticketing option to enjoy an array of complimentary tapas, a bottle of wine, and an enhanced viewing experience.

We hope you will join us for this Flamenco-filled evening, Olé!

Two hundred years after the initial influences that melded to create flamenco, our 21st century lens is offering us new modes of interpretation that can keep the art evolving. From breaking down gender roles to incorporating non-traditional and recorded music and revisiting the role of props, a contemporary approach to the art form pushes us to the limit of defining what is Flamenco.
