Flamenco Festival Miami 2012March 9 – 11, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts at Ziff Ballet Opera House, 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami

Flamenco Festival Miami returns to the Arsht Center with three of Spain’s greatest Flamenco divas: Carmen Cortes, Rafaela Carrasco and Olga Pericet in a thrilling repertory of original pieces honoring the great 20th century Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca. The festival will feature a unique artistic collaboration by the three world-renowned flamenco dancer-choreographers who will share the stage in a mesmerizing display of dazzling technique and dramatic choreography. In a spectacular Miami premiere, these flamenco superstars will be accompanied by an ensemble of 15 dancers and musicians, direct from Spain, for a virtuosic dance display that explores the full spectrum of flamenco—ranging from the gypsy roots of traditional flamenco to trailblazing contemporary innovations that push the boundaries of the genre with striking originality and intrigue. Performances at 8 p.m. on Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. on Saturday, and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets range from $25 to $90.
