The show takes place in a small theatre attached to the "Museo del baile flamenco". Actually the theatre is located in the covered courtyard of the old building which houses the museum; the courtyard has been filled with chairs, but they are too small and too close together, so sitting is uncomfortable, especially if you are tall. Also viewing can be problematic if you are not sitting in the front row; but if you sit there your legs will literally fight for space with the stage! Entry is by "first come, first sit", therefore it is advisable to be there well in advance and wait in line.
The show, like many others in Sevilla, is composed of three pieces of danced flamenco, separated by performances of guitar solo. The dancers showed extraordinary virtuosity in executing the “zapateado” (the tip-tapping of the feet), so much so that I don't hesitate to rate them among the best I've seen in a long time now. But the show also has some negative points: particularly harmful is the use of microphones to amplify the voice of the singers and the sound of the guitar. Their use appears completely unjustified since the room is small: the singers' voice is unnaturally distorted and the clapping of hands is totally suffocated. My rating 4 is a recognition of the dancers' ability; the quality of the theatre is not at that level.
The venue has an annexed cafeteria, which is however open only around the show times. In February 2020 admission was 22 € (15 € for seniors).

An outstanding, passionate and intimate show. The guitars, voices and music cuts through your soul, because you're so close to the stage. Note, no videotaping is allowed, which is AWESOME because it forces everyone to focus on the stage with no phone lights distracting.

The dancing was just outstanding and impressive and the show is the right length. We didn't have time to do the museum but it looked great. Don't miss the show - feels authentic and not just for tourists.

This was our third visit to Seville but the first time we went to a flamenco show. It was recommended by our hotel and we enjoyed it much more than we expected to. The dancers and musicians also seemed to be enjoying themselves. A very pleasant evening.

Thank you very much for your opinion. All staff in the museum and the artists that perform every night in our PATIO or in the VAULT, we try to improve every day to make the experience of our visitors in something beautiful and gratifying, and for those who see flamenco for the First time, after visiting the museum with its explanations and seeing a show, become lovers of this art, intangible heritage of humanity, called FLAMENCO. And if you are already lovers of this art, we hope that every time you visit us you will see new things and you will enjoy them. Hope to see you again! Thanks again for your comments.

There are few health warnings before coming to this event..
1. Come early as they have crammed a lot of seats into the space and the seats at the back mean that you can have a blocked view due to the pillars

2. At 25 Euros each you expect a little social distancing and good seating but the space was maximised to generate as many seats as possible. As there is no rake this means that apart from the first two rows its hard to see the dancers feet.

But- the dancing is fantastic, the music is excellent and as long as you come prepared you will be startled.

We did not visit the museum - we attended the 7:00 (19 hr) show. In a word - spectacular. If they had tickets available for the 8:30 show we would have stayed for it as well.

It's tight seating on uncomfortable chairs but well worth it. The show sells out so you need to pre-book. We booked through our hotel once we arrived.

They sell beverages but not food.

Visited for the show not the museum. We loved it - passionate, wonderful guitar, singing and dancing. Felt real and not just a show for tourists. Also good news no videoing allowed so could just absorb the experience.

Most reviews on this page are about the show. I can't comment on that, since we only went to the museum. I wanted to take my wife to learn about flamenco, its origins, the different styles, etc. (my family is from Spain). We were really sad to be disappointed in this museum. It is definitely not worth the 10 euro admission fee. Here's why:

When you arrive, you are given a laminated sheet that explains in bullet points what you'll see in each of the rooms. I was very excited to see that it started with the origins of flamenco - where each element (the movement of the hands, the rhythm, etc.) came from. We headed to that first room: it's just a screen with a psychedelic video of slow motion animation accompanied by background Indian music. And...that was it. No exhibit, no audio commentary, nothing. We honestly thought this was just the entrance to the actual exhibit. Also, the room is pitch dark so if you haven't read the four or five bullet points on the sheet you'll be lost.

The next room delves into the "palos" of flamenco - let's say, the various dances and styles. These you see on interactive screens. The presentation is a bit dry in terms of text, but what really detracts from the experience is the fact that behind you there's a large screen with flamenco music playing loudly, so you can't properly listen to the music in your earphones.
The third room is fairly large. Here, the push for the museum to be interactive unravels: there are some 7 or more screens playing music and commentary quite loudly, so you can't really hear the presentation in front of you. Even then, there's really no rhyme or reason to it all. No chronology, no cohesiveness. Speaking loftily about flamenco is NOT a substitute for interesting information. We love flamenco, that's why we're here!

In the end, we both walked out of the museum feeling empty and thirsty, with a bullet-point knowledge of the origins of flamenco - with such an interesting cultural background, we SHOULD have come out with at least a few interesting facts to talk about. We give it one star because we were exposed to the different palos, but, considering the lack of context, you can achieve as much on your own without having to pay 10 euro.

Summary: hi-tech without substance = gimmick. A pity for a museum created by an artist I admire and respect. The show might be worth it (we didn't go - found much cheaper elsewhere), but skip the museum.

Great performance for a very low price! We did not take the museum tour package though. However, the performance was intriguing and since it is in such a close atmosphere you can feel the flamenco dancers' spirit seep into you. Shouldn't miss this 1 hour performance that makes you wanting for more flamenco shows. They really have their own swagger!!

Many hotels (even quality ones) will tell you to go to this museo for a flamenco show. Don't do it! Except when you want to sit between tourists who think they are watching flamenco. It was the worst flamenco I have seen in my life.
