Barcelona Flamenco Ballet's

  • This event has passed.

Suspense, intrigue, sex, scandal, love. The Alex Theatre presents Luxurîa (“Lust”), the latest flamenco dance-
theater sensation from Spain’s internationally renowned Barcelona Flamenco Ballet. One performance only is set for Saturday, April 16 at 8p.m.

Award-winning Barcelona Flamenco Ballet artistic directors, choreographers and ballarines principals
(principal dancers) David Gutiérrez and Paula Reyes will be accompanied on the Alex stage by cantaor (singer) Joel de Pepa and guitarrista (guitarist) Jordi Centeno. Los Angeles native, and a
local flamenco circuit favorite, percussionista (percussionist) Gerardo Morales joins the ensemble for its eight-state U.S. tour.

Showcasing the company’s unique, pioneering style that combines traditional flamenco dance and music
with elements of ballet, classical and jazz, Luxurîa spins an intensely passionate tale about a
charismatic artist (Gutiérrez) who encounters the
greatest love of his life (Reyes). The audience becomes privy to the performers’ most intimate
emotions when “Lust” intervenes. Barcelona Flamenco Ballet’s innovative form of flamenco
conveys the intensity, the passion and the tragedy as our hero is plagued by self-doubt, pride,
despair and, ultimately, loneliness.

Per LA County guidelines, there are no COVID-19 restrictions currently in place.
