Legendary flamenco guitarist Paco Peña returns to Sadler’s Wells with his latest show Flamenco sin Fronteras, after receiving huge critical acclaim at its premiere in 2009.
Working with 12 virtuoso musicians, singers and dancers from his own company and guest artists from Venezuela performing live on stage, Paco Pena explores the many dance styles that emerged through the migration of Spanish performers to Latin America in the early 1900s, and their significant impact on flamenco today.
Joyful, superbly danced and packed with all the intensity, depth and raw energy that have become this maestro’s trademark, this is a guaranteed way to bring some heat to the British summer!
