Madrid: Flamenco Show Ticket with Drinks and Optional Dinner

6. Madrid: Flamenco Show Ticket with Drinks and Optional Dinner

The only two ingredients we use in our recipe are heart and soul and the complete surrender of the artists to their craft. They have no script, they use no given structure. Improvisation, emotion, feelings, that thing we call duende (inspiration). Step inside Flamenco La Quimera and experience a real flamenco with the singing voice, guitar music, hand-clapping rhythms, and dance. We refrain from using those technologies that did not exist in the XIX century, the time when FLAMENCO was real because voice, guitars, clapping and dancing was all there was.

What people are saying about Madrid

Show de flamenco intimista. Muito diferente dos demais que já tínhamos visto. Logo no início notamos um palco muito pequeno, mas ao decorrer da apresentação, quando você se depara ao longo da apresentação, você está juntamente com os artistas envolvidos na dança dentro do palco.

This show is incredible. The energy, the dancing, the singing, and the guitarist are all phenomenal. What’s NOT great is audience members being one their phones the entire time while the people on stage are being incredible.

Hermoso show… nos sorprendió desde el primer momento. Estuvimos encantadas con la performance. Los 4 artistas sobre el tablón transmitieron toda la energía y la magia del flamenco. Recomendado!!!

An essential address, the singer dancers and the hat guitarist to convey emotions... It was absolutely beautiful Bravo

Incredible experience, a place you have to see when you’re in Madrid!
