There are twenty-five performances in New York (Harlem Parish), from September 9 to October 9; sixteen in Washington DC (Miracle Theatre), from October 14 to November 6; and twelve in Dallas, November 10-20.
The direction, choreography and dance are in the hands of Amador Rojas and Yolanda Osuna. José Tomás Jiménez leads the musical direction and the guitar. Next to him is Sergio de Lope as musical co-director, saxophone and flute player. Manu Soto and Bernardo Mirando provide the ‘cante’ and finally Lolo Plantón is on percussion. In each performance, the septet takes a journey through different forms of flamenco, paying special attention to those that are happier more joyous.
It is not the first time that El Teatro Real promotes and spreads flamenco throughout the world, with special interest in Latin American and other Asian countries such as China, India and even the United Arab Emirates. All eyes are on Authentic Flamenco arriving at other countries like Brazil or India after their tour of the United States.
