I hadn't planned to see a Flamenco show in Granada, but a young lady at the Segway tour highly recommended that I see this particular "authentic Gypsy Flamenco" performance. I was told that I'd be picked up at the hotel and transported to the show location, but unfortunately there was a mixup in the arrangements and that didn't happen. After a phone call from the desk staff at my hotel, management at Venta El Gallo took care of the problem quickly and efficiently, and I commend them on the way they handled my situation (the complimentary drink was a nice touch also).
The venue also offers dining in addition to the Flamenco show, but I wasn't aware of that at the time so can't comment on the food.
I had never seen a Flamenco show before this, and that was one experience I was very much looking forward to during my visit to Spain. The performance I saw at Venta El Gallo did not disappoint! All the performers were highly proficient, passionate and energetic and the show was amazing! At times the dancers appeared to be staring off into space with an emotional look. I only have a basic understanding of the origins and structure of Flamenco so wasn't sure what that meant, but it seemed to elicit a sense of emotion in the audience, who were transfixed on the performers.
I attended another Flamenco performance in Sevilla a few days after that, and the performers there were also very good. Unfortunately it wasn't the same experience as I saw at Venta El Gallo, and I didn't enjoy the Sevilla version as much. I would definitely like to return to Venta El Gallo to see another of these incredible shows.
My only regret is that I didn't have an opportunity to meet the performers after the show. At the end of the show, audiences are quickly hustled out the door to waiting Mini-Buses for transport back to the city centre.
