About this event
Flamboyant, percussive, and emotionally breathtaking, the art form known as flamenco is coming to the MSU Riley Center stage. Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, led by the woman whom Dance Magazine has called "The Keeper of Flamenco," will present an electrifying showcase of sensuous music and dance. Flamenco arose hundreds of years ago in the Spanish region of Andalusia. Over the centuries it has incorporated influences from Spanish, Latin American, Arab, Jewish, and Roma (Gypsy) cultures. Santana, co-founder and artistic director of Flamenco Vivo, is passionately devoted to the company's mission of "building bridges between cultures using the universal spirit of flamenco."
Patrons can make the evening even more memorable with an optional 6 p.m. pre-show dinner of tapas—traditional Spanish small-plate dishes—from Babalu Tapas and Tacos in Jackson. A $25 advance purchase is required.
Show tickets are $17 to $70 and can be purchased at www.msurileycenter.com, by phone at 601-696-2200 or in person at the MSU Riley Center Box Office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
