What is not to love about Saturday night at the newly refurbished Ford Amphitheatre for “Forever Flamenco”?
The distinguished flamenco presentation series normally based at the Fountain Theatre in Hollywood transfers every summer to the plein air setting of the Ford. There’s been a jog for the upgrade of the facility and we’ve been missing that flamenco adventure.
It’s a raucous and heavenly time on a steamy summer night, with wine and nosherai. Bring your own tapas! ¡Olè!
Saturday evening’s international line-up of renowned flamenco artists includes:
Bailaores y bailaoras (dancers)
Reyes Barrios, Ricardo Chavez, Melissa Cruz, Jesus Muñoz, Mizuho Sato, Oscar Valero, Daniela Zermeño
Antonio de Jerez and Jesus Montoya
Guitarristas: Kai Narezo and José Tanaka, Percusionista: Joey Heredia.
This ultimate of pick-up troupes — the company is comprised of collaborators, long-time friends, members of a close-knit community — promises an evening of passion, artistry, joy.

See you there. Hasta …
