AMAZING. This performance was absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I were mesmerized the entire time... the music, dancing, singing - all of it was exceptional. It was our first time watching a Flamenco show, and we didn't know it would be so captivating. The entire cast was an extremely skilled group, if we had another night we would have gone back to watch this again. Do not skip this if you are visiting Seville!

The museum is very informative about Flamenco history, its styles, and techniques. The Flamenco performers did an outstanding show. We enjoyed the activity very much.

Absolutely outstanding! Incredibly professional and the artists were so appreciative of each other which made it even more enjoyable for the audience

Sasha was an excellent guide, this was a great opportunity to try tapas at smaller local places away from main tourist places!

Amazing show. Talented performers. Highly recommend.
