Famed flamenco artist Antonio Granjero has returned to Santa Fe with his company EntreFlamenco with “Aire,” an all-new show at the Maria Benitez Cabaret at The Lodge at Santa Fe for performances nightly—Wednesday through Sunday—until October 21. The performances are presented with support from Maria Benitez and the Institute for Spanish Arts.

Granjero, lead dancer and choreographer with Maria Benitez Teatro Flamenco for 12 years, continues the legacy of her great company—the company that set the standard for flamenco performances in Santa Fe.

Granjero’s hallmark artistic integrity and the unmistakable style he brought to Santa Fe from Jerez de la Frontera in Spain are as present now as ever. Performing with Granjero are EntreFlamenco dancers Emy Molina, Sol Acuña and Domino Martinez and a superb compliment of musicians, including renowned guitarist Ricardo Anglada, bassist Asher Barrera and singer Roberto Lorente from Madrid.

Founded by Antonio Granjero in 1998 and originally based in Madrid, Spain, EntreFlamenco has traveled throughout the Iberian pennínsula and now performs throughout the U.S. from its base in San Antonio, Texas.

“Aire” is a full-length dance performance showcasing authentic flamenco music and dance from southern Spain including all new group choreography, solos and innovative musical collaborations.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a truly high caliber flamenco experience you won’t soon forget.  With a ticket range of $25 to $45 per person in this intimate cabaret setting, the show is a “best bet” to see flamenco at its finest.

Tickets are available through ticketssantafe.org, over the phone at 988-1234 or in person at The Lensic box office and at the door.
