Under the direction of Artistic Director and Founder Gabriela Granados, Tablao Flamenco™ has served as a vehicle for the company to showcase some of the finest local and international talent, both renowned and up-and-coming. Since its premiere four years ago, the series has garnered recognition and praise by both audience members and the media. Its world-class dancers, singers and musicians have been described as “impressive”
The season finale will feature a special appearance by flamenco dancer and choreographer, JUAN SIDDI. As a young, powerful and passionate flamenco dancer, Mr. Siddi began performing in tablaos flamencos at the age of 15, and by 18, he was touring with professional dance companies and productions. He has enjoyed a spectacular worldwide career, performing all over Europe, including at the Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla and for His Majesty Juan Carlos of Spain, in the Middle East, and throughout the United States, where he has been an invited artist in the companies of Maria Benitez and La Tania. In 2007, he founded his own company, Juan Siddi Flamenco Theatre in Santa Fe, NM, where he was honored with the 2011 Mayor’s Award for Artistic Excellence.
Mr. Siddi will share the stage with a superb cast of phenomenal performers that includes dancers GABRIELA GRANADOS and SARA ERDE, singers ALFONSO CID and AURORA REYES, guitarists BASILIO GEORGES and CRISTIAN PUIG, percussionist JOSÉ MORENO and the BALLET ESPAÑOL DE GABRIELA GRANADOS.
