Gran Gala Flamenco: A trip through the heart of flamenco

The most widely seen Flamenco Spectacle in the history of Barcelona.

With 18 years of uninterrupted productions, it has been a big success with the public and critics alike.

Gran Gala Flamenco is a voyage through all that Flamenco offers, where you can find everything imagined in this art form: Castanets, Dress Train Sweeps, Fans, Precious and Sensual Costumes; all along with original music. This wonderful combination is the reason for our 18 years of uninterrupted programming.

Contrary to what takes place in some Tablaos, in Gran Gala Flamenco, the spectator enjoys spectacular choreography created by the most acclaimed companies of the present panorama of Catalan and Spanish dance. It is the only Flamenco show that can be found in the two most emblematic theaters of the city: El Palau de la Música Catalana (declared Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO, with seating for 1900) and El Poliorama, situated on the first floor of Barcelona’s Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts (with seating for 700). The Artistic Director is the acclaimed guitarist, Juan Gomez Chicuelo, who has accompanied renowned artists, such as Enrique Morente, Miguel Poveda, and Duquenque or El Cigala.

Gran Gala Flamenco is a production of Barcelona y Flamenco, the most important Flamenco Producer, known for its grand spectacles, namely, Opera y Flamenco and Guitarra y Flamenco.
