Mi Carmen Flamenca by ANTONIO ANDRADE FLAMENCO COMPANY

Fiery Andalusia. Men with raven hair and mesmerizing looks. Hot girls and women in colourful skirts with ruffles and lace. The clatter of castanets. A thrilling rhythm and omnipresent tension – a dance adaptation of the immortal story of Carmen. The first Czech guest appearance of the leading Spanish ensemble of dancers, singers and instrumentalists, founded in Seville and based in Malaga, the cradle of flamenco.

“Spain is a land of dance, music and mystery. The joyfulness contrasts sharply with the motionless expressions of the flamenco dancers, who express their grief through the temperament of their movements. The apparent contradiction of the two expressions creates an extraordinarily impressive picture. It represents life.”

Federico García Lorca

frequently asked questions

Bad Weather…
The performance takes place outdoors. If the usually pleasant summer skies aren’t obliging, an awning will take a few minutes to silently roll into place over the heads of the audience. Therefore, the performance will go ahead even if it rains. A few raindrops may fall in spots in Section C, which is why tickets for this section are sold for a discounted price.

Wheelchairs
We want do everything possible to make things easy for people in wheelchairs. Therefore, to purchase tickets, please contact Jitka at nazdravetska@smetanovalitomysl.cz or +420 602 457 338.

Tour of Smetana’s Birthplace
It’s almost as if intermission was created just for visiting Smetana’s birthplace, as it’s directly on the grounds.
