We booked late for the drink and dance show and wow we were luck to get good seats and througherly enjoyed the show. What power and passion these dances put into their show, just amazing. I would recommend anyone to see this.

My daughter is taking flamenco lessons so this was a must while at Barcelona.
The show is professional and great, in. Small theater which makes it more personal and fine view of the stage from any location

I know nothing about Flamenco and we had not booked a show before coming to Barcelona so when we walked past Flamenco Ramblas and the ticket sellers approached us we were interested. We opted for downstairs which was 25euro each but for which we paid 20euro.
Venue was good but seating was on first in best dressed so lots of the later customers were complaining about their seats. I think every seat would be fine for viewing.
My verdict from this show is I don't like Flamenco. In this show there was more singing than dancing and it just wasn't to my liking. It was long mournful music and I couldn't wait to get out of there but it was only an hour and it was worth it to get a taste of it.

My husband had never seen a Flamenco show, so when traveling to Spain we waited to be in Barcelona to book a show, assuming it would be the best entertainment possible. This was the most disappointing entertainment of our entire trip! I've seen multiple Flamenco shows in Madrid and in Mexico and they were fabulous. Flamenco Ramblas was painful. The first clue was the music, the guitarist and drummer started off strong, but then the music and woman and man singing it sounded like music from the Mid-East and chanting. The costumes were not attractive and the female performers were grossly overweight. All dances were individual, no couple dancing. One man danced and he was a good dancer, but the music again was terrible. I would not recommend this show to anyone, we almost walked out. Do not waste your money!

Thank you for coming to our show and your opinion Jan. We are sorry that your expectations were different from what you had the oportunity to see at Flamenco Ramblas.
What we do is authentic flamenco, so the dresses which our women wear are not meant to distract the eyes of the public, but to enhance the talent of the dancer. Our female dancers are women who are also mothers, workers, wives, and many more and we like that because is part of the flamenco life.
Regarding music and musicians, we are sorry if any technical issue had occurred during the show you have enjoyed.

Regards.

Really enjoyed this authentic flamenco show in the beautiful Teatro Principal on La Rambla. We booked the cheapest balcony tickets on the day, only a few hours before the show and at only €15 each it was great value for money and the most affordable tickets we could find. The show was approximately one hour, just the right length of time, and the guitarist, singers and dancers were all incredible! We left wanting to stamp our feet! The only reason I have given 4 stars is that we bought the balcony seats and were instead seated on the back row of the stalls where the view was slightly restricted, we would have preferred to be in the balcony.
