2010 London Flamenco Festival begins

Sadler's Wells Flamenco

The seventh annual London Flamenco Festival has begun at the excellent Sadler’s Wells Theatre in Islington.

Known for it’s original and varied international programme, the festival continues until February 27th, and is well worth catching if you’re in the capital …

The crème de la crème of Spain’s flamenco talent are performing during Sadler’s Wells’ very special two week Flamenco Festival.

From Rafaela Carrasco’s bold, contemporary flamenco style to Maria Pagés’ emotional rollercoaster of a show and the maestros of flamenco, Rojas and Rodriguez, with their sublime company Nuevo Ballet Español, famed for their heart-racing sequences, this is a unique chance to sample some authentic Spanish flamenco in London.

Jenny Gilbert, of The Independent, reviewed the week one performances of Nuevo Ballet Espano and Eva Yerbabuena here, and David Dougill reviewed the opening night in The Times.
