Flamenco Festival Miami 2015March 12 – 14, 8pm-10pm - Adrienne Arsht Center, John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall, 400 SE 2nd Ave, Miami

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County proudly announces Flamenco Festival Miami 2015 presented by TotalBank, returning for an 8th season featuring four glorious performances by one of Spain’s foremost ambassadors of flamenco, Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras, in the Center’s John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall from March 12-14, 2015. For their Miami engagement, Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras will perform VOCES, a thrilling new evening-length work created by Baras as a tribute to the great proponents (or “voices”) of flamenco – Paco de Lucia, Antonio Gades, Enrique Morente, Moraito and Carmen Amaya.

Sara Baras has become internationally famous for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence over a career that has spanned more than 20 years. As an ambassador of Spanish culture to the world, Baras was asked to lend her image for the creation of Spain Barbie®; was honored by the Spanish government with a commemorative postage stamp; and has been the face of major international brands such as Cartier and Freixenet. Described by The Guardian as a “woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane,” Baras has created and choreographed 11 original evening works and delivered more than 2,500 magnificent performances with her company all over the world.

Tickets for Flamenco Festival Miami 2015 range from $35 – $95* and can be purchased through the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling 305-949-6722, or online at www.arshtcenter.org.
