Stars of Flamenco is a long-standing tradition joining exceptional flamenco dancers and singers in an evening that demonstrates the diversity and vibrancy of flamenco. This year, Manuel Liñán reappears as the artistic director, bringing together three of flamenco’s leading dancers: Mercedes Ruíz, María Moreno and Eduardo Guerrero.
Mercedes Ruiz 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 onstage by a cadre of musicians and a special guest artist: rising singer Maria Terremoto, the youngest artist to receive the Giraldillo award for new artist at the Seville Flamenco Biennial.
