Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca

IN-PERSON PERFORMANCE

Wednesday, February 9, 2022
10 a.m. (Central)

Woltosz Theatre

Born in Madrid, Soledad Barrio is one of today’s great dancers and was hailed by The New York Times as “a force of nature”—a flamenco dancer who “seemingly sends sparks into the floor.” Along with artistic director and founder Martín Santangelo, the duo has toured their New York City-based company around the globe. They have become known for their highly skilled performances and their commitment to the authentic heart and soul of flamenco—the Andalusian art form that was born from great pain, joy and extreme circumstances. Their performance will captivate audience members through awe-inspiring dance, song and music.
