Flamenco Festival

Sadler’s Wells: Flamenco Festival 14-25 February 

Bringing together a stellar line up of dancers, singers and musicians, the annual celebration of flamenco at Sadler’s Wells never puts a foot wrong.

This year is no exception, with 12 unique shows and film screenings demonstrating the passion of flamenco from its gypsy roots through to contemporary innovations. The flamenco festival kicks off with a concert featuring the leading voices in Spain today: the renowned Carmen Linares and rising stars Arcángel and Marina Heredia. Other highlights include a collaboration between avant-garde choreographer Israel Galván and classical dancer Isabel Bayón, Jesús Carmona with Ballet Flamenco, and a rare live appearance by the legendary La Chana.
