Whether you agree with George Bernard Shaw and consider dancing “a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire” or side with John Dryden’s view that “dancing is the poetry of the foot”, flamenco certainly embodies both. Passion and skill combine to create a symbiotic art form that is poetic, sensual, and rich in sensitivity.
Monica Tello, a multidisciplinary artist from Madrid, will dance flamenco to the vocals of Angel del Toro and the awe-inspiring playing of guitarist Javier Pastor. Together, these skilled performers will bring the mesmerising music tradition to life surrounded by countless candles.
Candlelight: Flamenco Experience is taking place at Manchester Cathedral, a grade I listed building conveniently located in the city centre. Admire the medieval structure while enjoying some of the genre’s most famous compositions, including “Entre dos Aguas” and “Alegrías de Cádiz”.
What’s more, as well as being awe-struck by emotional movements and moving melodies, guests can also add to the experience with our Candlelight Drinks Package. Toast to the pride of Spain, get lost in a sea of candles and immerse yourself in this 60-minute tribute to flamenco.
