"The intensity of Poveda's singing draws you in, even without a knowledge of Spanish" -- Evening Standard (UK)

Considered a genius in his native Spain, superstar MIGUEL POVEDA's nuanced and soulful voice has no equal in the world of flamenco. Poveda takes the audience on a tour of traditional flamenco, from the cheerful malagueñas and alegrías to the sorrowful seguirillas and soleás, all the while sharing his personal connection to the music with a spontaneity that ensures an exceptional performance.

"A showcase of flamenco, in all its flavors"– The Boston Globe

STARS OF FLAMENCO is a long-standing tradition of Flamenco Festival Miami, bringing together exceptional flamenco dancers and singers in an evening demonstrating the diversity and vibrancy of flamenco. This year, Manuel Liñán (2017 National Dance Prize) reappears as the artistic director of Stars of Flamenco.

This year's project will join together three of flamenco’s leading dancers. Mercedes Ruíz speaks about flamenco with a commanding truth and virtuosity (Financial Times). The bailaora from Jerez is one of the consolidated stars of the current time. Eduardo Guerrero is flamenco in its richest current incarnation. His marvelously eccentric solos (The New York Times) display a breathtaking array of movement that often pushes him to the perilous limits of human motion. As well as Eduardo, María Moreno was linked to Eva Yerbabuena Company for many years before starting their successful solo careers. Her astonishing dance pays tribute to the traditional style of Cádiz, to which she adds her own style full of expressivity, originality and passion. "A classic flamenco woman for the future."

The three dancers will be joined on stage by a cadre of musicians and a special guest artist: rising singer Maria Terremoto, the youngest ever artist to receive the Giraldillo award for new artist at the Seville Flamenco Biennial.

“This is the kind of flamenco everyone should see” —The Arts Desk (UK)

“Manuel Liñan is the best thing is happening to flamenco and Spanish dance today” - El País (Spain)

MANUEL LIÑÁN returns to Flamenco Festival Miami with an all-male dance company, in a new show that explores gender identity through characterizations inspired by the flamenco woman.

MANUEL LIÑÁN has garnered international praise for his showmanship and the sincerity with which he challenges the rules of traditional flamenco. In ¡VIVA! he is joined by six other bailaores-bailarinas, male dancers dressed in traditional female costumes, for a jubilant expression of flamenco dancing where the feminine is embraced by the masculine body and gender roles are broken—exposing dramatic new forms.
