What woman could hold a candle to Soledad Barrio? In modern dance, Isadora Duncan and Martha Graham. In ballet, maybe Nora Kaye, in her Tudor roles. Certainly no one we can go and see today has Barrio’s transformative power.
— Tobi Tobias, Arts Journal
[Noche Flamenca]’s new show expertly uses the talents of headliner Soledad Barrio... [This is] flamenco puro — the Spanish art stripped to its flammable core. ★★★★★
— Apollinaire Scherr, The Financial Times
Soledad Barrio [is] a flamenco star... This, of course, is the moment everyone has been waiting for.

Tickets, $20-50

The renowned company Noche Flamenca comes to the Connelly Theater with Entre T y Yo (Between You and Me), an evening-length program of duets, solos, and ensemble works exploring the constraints imposed and the possibilities afforded by human relationships.

In “La Ronde,” inspired by Max Orphul’s 1954 film, Martín Santangelo uses a series of duets to explore love, hate, jealousy, and death. Soledad Barrio's signature “Sole” exemplifies the catharsis at the heart of flamenco. Barrio is joined by some of Spain's most celebrated flamenco artists, including dancers Antonio Rodriguez, Marina Elana, and Jasiel Nahim; musicians Eugenio Iglesias, Salva de Maria, and David Rodriguez; and singers Manuel Gago, Emilio Florido, and Carmina Cortes.

About the Company
Under the direction of Martín Santangelo, the award-winning Noche Flamenca has become one of the world's most successful touring companies. Formed in 1993 by Santangelo and his Bessie award-winning wife, Soledad Barrio, the company performs regularly in New York City and tours worldwide. Hailed by critics for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances, Noche Flamenca is recognized as the most authentic flamenco touring company in the field today, expressing the rigorous, spell-binding aesthetic of one of the world's most complex and mysterious art forms. All aspects of flamenco dance, song, and music are interrelated and given equal weight creating a true communal spirit within the company: the very heart and soul of flamenco.

All Hallow’s Eve


Written & Directed by Martin P. Robinson
Music by Paul Rudolph

October 2019
Tickets on sale August 1st

Eve and Evan are twins roped into yet another desperately dull Halloween by their parents. Managing to break free, they maraud, pumpkin smash and toilet paper, inadvertently crossing the thin line between worlds on this night of all nights. Enter a house and a demoness who has been lying in wait for just such a pair. A harrowing cat and mouse game ensues with the stakes nothing less than their immortal souls. A tale wrapped up in horror, comedy and blood…and definitely not for young children.
