Hailed as the greatest flamenco dancer of the century by The New York Times, this powerhouse performer is heir to the most renowned Gypsy flamenco dynasty. With a Broadway debut at age 4 and his own show in London at 15, Farruquito captivates audiences with his mastery of the art form and infectious charisma, not to mention the looks that made him one of the World’s 50 Most Beautiful People in People magazine. We can’t wait for this flamenco royal to hit the stage with his theatrical flair and incredible fusion of guitar, singing, and dance that has delighted audiences around the world.
- Farruquito’s grandfather and legendary creator of his flamenco style, El Farruco, told The New York Times that flamenco “comes in the womb,” taking great pride in his grandson’s talent and the legacy he would leave him.
- The New York Times considered Farruquito “the best artist to have set foot in the Big Apple in 2001” after his performance at the US Flamenco Festival.
- “I like to show the truth of flamenco,” stated Farruquito. “That truth is improvisation; a dancer shouldn’t know what’s coming… You can’t learn it just in a studio, you must live it.”
This performance will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
