Sara Baras, Artistic Director
Voces, Suite Flamenca (D.C. PREMIERE)
"With Voces, Sara Baras has once again not only demonstrated her talent, but also her fascinating ability to get in contact with the audience. In other words: passion and success."--Le Monde (translation from French)
"A woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane"--The Guardian (UK)
"Few flamenco dancers have become such a star."--Los Angeles Times
Voces, Suite Flamenca is the brand-new show from Sara Baras, Spain's most popular flamenco star. Celebrated for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence, she is adored by the international press as "one of those performers you just can't take your eyes off" (London's The Daily Telegraph). Baras's new work is a tribute to flamenco featuring influences of the greatest artists that have inspired her, such as Paco de Lucia, Camarón de la Isla, Antonio Gades, Enrique Morente, Moraíto, and Carmen Amaya.
Voces, Suite Flamenca is a large-scale production--a hugely entertaining, colorful, and vibrant show that captures all the emotion, drama, and passion of flamenco. It's the perfect showcase for Baras's huge talent, building to a truly spectacular free-form finale.
Performance Timing: 1 hour, 40 minutes, with no intermission.
