I enjoyed the show. You got to see a solo of each instrument player. The dancers were great. A drink is included with the ticket (Sangria or soda if you don't drink).

Hello 6faithe: "The dancers were great". Yes, our artistic director, El Mistela, is winner of The Flamenco National Critics Prize, and he, and his habitual "bailaora", were the dancers you saw. Thank you for your kind comment.

This was the only flamenco venue we visited in Madrid but it was as good as shows we have seen elsewhere in Spain. The club itself in the old town is atmospheric being below a small bar area, down in the cellar of the building. The stage is tiny but provides enough space for a singer, three very fine musicians - a drummer, superb violinist and a guitarist - and two dancers. The limited space itself allowed all the necessary passion of this incredible dance form to be communicated to a small, intimate audience. It was a pity that it was just an hour; a longer performance would have been a pleasure.

Hello Britannicus: Yes, the show last one hour, for many tourist is enough for a approaching to this art. Specially for them who brings kids. But let me tell you one thing: I´ve seen the show a hundred times, and always is different. The dancers have a lot of improvisation in their performances. So, if you want more, just come again :) You will see what I´m talking about. Thank you for your kind review.

Great one hour show. The performers were talented and looked like they were having a blast. Throughly enjoyed myself. And the sangria included was delicious.

Hello HJW: Sin duda, cada noche los artistas disfrutan de lo que hacen "They were having a blast", que en España se diría que se lo estaban pasando pipa. Eso se nota, se transmite. El flamenco es su vida, no su trabajo. Suerte para ellos y para nosotros, que disfrutamos de su arte. Gracias por tu amable comentario.

Fantastic! Very intimate environment with passionate performers who are committed to their craft. Environment and costumes are simple, but performers are very engaging. I highly recommend it!

Hello LaurelWild: Your are right, the lack of accessories things, put the spot in where it has to be: In artist´s passion. You said "passionate performers" and "very engaging". That's exactly what we want you to remember, more than the environment or costumes.
Thanks for your kind review.
