€15 tickets at the venue a few hours earlier. Small cosy place with folding seats set up. Nothing fancy. The performers were really good! Guitarist was excellent!

My friends and I chose this spot for our Seville flamenco experience based upon Rick Steves' recommendation, and we were not disappointed. The setting is small, intimate, and unpretentious, and the flamenco was riveting. Pricing is reasonable, as you're not paying for drinks and dinner -- it's all about the art. To visit Seville without experiencing flamenco would be tragic.... More

We loved experiencing flamenco for the first time at Alvarez Quintero. The space, as mentioned, is intimate which perfectly suits the performance. And the performers absolutely blew us away. My girlfriend was literally moved to tears. It was one of our favorite experiences in all of Spain. Get tickets early and get a seat in the middle section (it was... More

In this flamenco club you have to visit if you like intimate place without any clumerules. There is no food or drinks to get. Only simpel space, auditorio, stage and three good artists. This place is offcourse only for tourists. There were no sevillians on auditorio like so many other flamenco places in Seville. But the situation is central, place... More

The room is very small so when the performance began there was an almost awkward tension at being so close to the performers. However once they got going we were entranced. The 3 performers (singer, guitarist, dancer ) were all brilliant. One thing I would advise is to buy tickets earlier in the day as you can get a discount.... More

I concur with the other reviewers who found flamenco at Auditorio Alvarez Quintero to be an energetic, dramatic, and passionate experience. The small stage did enhance the intimacy and intensity of the performance, as did the absence of commercial activities such as selling drinks or food. I also concur that it is best to arrive early, since seating is first... More

Went to see a show at this small, intimate club on Monday 23rd September. We were absolutely blown away by the sheer energy , drama and passion of the performance. Just one female dancer with a male singer and male guitarist but what a show they put on. This was one of the highlighs of our holiday and would say... More

We've seen flamenco before, but never quite like this. The setting is small and intimate and the performances amazingly powerful. Each performer was our favorite until the next one appeared. The 4 person troupe included a wonderful guitarist (just listening to him would have been a sufficient treat), a singer and 2 dancers. The male dancer, in particular, seemed to... More

A fairly inimate venue which gives a taste of true flamenco. The performers were very good the day we went, especially Jose El Morito the guitarist. The seating arrangements make it a little tricky to see the performers feet, but the venue is small enough to move around. Well worth a visit and preferable to the big shows which are... More

We booked our tickets through a travel agency for this Flamenco show, and the performance did not disappoint. After the show began, we could tell that the show was "real" Flamenco, not a touristy version. The dances and the songs were so moving, and the performers showed such feeling. It was an amazing show, hands down.
