This celebrated flamenco troupe and its lead dancer, Soledad Barrio, bring Andalusian Spain’s richly rhythmic music and dramatic movement to the Damrosch Park Bandshell for a spellbinding set. By presenting their dynamic performances inside vibrantly colored stagings, the ensemble gives audiences a tactile sense of the region’s uniqueness—achieving an effect the New York Times describes as “a mesmerizing array of dance and music.”

In the first part of the evening, old and new worlds collide when the Manhattan Camerata brings its Tango Fado Project to the stage. Rising fadista Nathalie Pires, who infuses the Portuguese song tradition of fado with blazing new energy, joins forces with some of Argentina’s foremost tango champions for an electrifying dialogue between these treasured world music traditions.
