Fiesta Flamenca and Carmina Burana, two dance shows which merge classical ballet with Spanish flamenco, will be staged in Cairo between 8 and 11 March and in Alexandria on 13 March.
The show will be staged by Ballet Flamenco de Madrid, a troupe familiar to Egyptian audiences. The company visited Cairo and Alexandria in February last year with Carmen, a show that transported the audiences through the traditions of Spain, fusing extracts of Bizet’s music with traditional flamenco.
The Ballet Flamenco de Madrid was founded in 2001 as an independent theatre company becoming a non-profit cultural association in 2009.
On its website, the company states that all its performances “were born from the need to break the cliché that states the Spanish dance is just flamenco dancing."
