“Wow what a flamenco show!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Visiting Seville with 9 friends, we decided to watch the flamenco show here. A few of us went to the museum as well, and enjoyed it. But the Flamenco was something else. All of us found it to be one of the highlights of our visit. There were a male and female dancer, a singer and a guitar player who all performed both together and solo. As the show got on, I realised I was moving along with the music and found myself completely entranced with the sounds and movements.
I do highly recommend a visit to this show.

“Authetic flamenco”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

When I saw this show I was awestruck...the passion of the dancers, the guitarist and the singer! Just outstanding. It had everything, the moodiness, the emotion, the stamina....this show really showcases all the parts that make flamenco the tradition it is.
To add to the strength of the show, the museo is intimate, you can see the movements, you can feel the floor move, you feel like you are the one dancing with the leads.

From a family perspective, we all loved it - our 4 year old to nanna! Our daughter has been running around for days pretending to be an 'a-mango' dancer, clapping and stomping her feet. If you miss out on the front few rows, sit in the back against the wall as you can stand up during the show to see the footwork. Also there is space for a stroller. Some of the side seats also have a great view of the stage for the little ones to see the footwork. We took our daughters dinner in to the 7pm show and it was no issue. You can purchase wine and drinks before the show.

Having read a few comments on Tripadviser, I think that the flamenco show is being rated down on the strength of expectations for the museum...don't let this trick you out of seeing what is a fabulous show, that show cases the guitar, singing and dancing aspects, in a charming intimate environment.

“Professional with no frills”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

The Flamenco show last one hour and the theatre seats maybe 100 persons. Four artists are featured with a female and male dancer and guitarist and singer. Each has an opportunity to display their particular skill which is exceptional. A pleasing aspect is that there is no pressure to buy poor value add-ons such as drinks or meals. Recommended. Tickets were approx.,Euros 17.

“not a museum”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

when it says museum, you expect at least a bit of history, some explanation, albeit in a rather rudimental form. That's not what this place is about. There's a bit of information about the origin, some vidfeos on the different styples and schools, again a bit of video (in 6 languages) that is supposed to illustrate the evolution (which we didn't see) and an exhibit of dresses. The other 2 floors are filled with paintings and other works of art, related to flamenco, and in the shop you can buy a cutaway flamenco guitar for 1000 euro. That's about all there is, and we felt it was not worth the 10 euro per person (3 to 5 would be justified)

“Flamenco show - wonderful!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We didn't go to the museum, but we turned up to reserve tickets for a performance (duration is 1 hour and there is another performance at 8:45pm) the following evening at 7pm (tickets were 20 Euros for the performance only - if you want to go to the museum as well, the total price is 24 Euros). As per the other reviews, we turned up 35 minutes before the show started and had first choice of seating - we sat right in front of the stage in the front row. 10 minutes after we sat down, the whole place was full, so we recommend you arrive early and enjoy a drink (they have a bar there).

The performances were stunning. Even my partner who is no aficionado of any form of dance felt it was one of the best things to have done in Seville, and he enjoyed it immensely. I read one review that mentioned being hit by sweat from the dancers when sat in the front row - they were not kidding! The dress of one dancer swept past my knees my some people's faces, and the sweat of a male dancer did flick in our faces and knees a few times! Not ideal...however, people in the second row were leaning left and right to try and get a good view of the dancers and their incredible footwork so it was worth it!
