Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras: Sombras Tickets

London Ballet & Dance
Sara Baras returns to the West End stage with Sombras a unique take on the Farruca
The flamenco superstar Sara Baras makes a welcome return to London with her latest intoxicating flamenco spectacle, Sombras. Acclaimed for her charismatic stage presence and floor-pummelling footwork, Baras draws on a dance thread that has woven its way through her career, as she celebrates the 20th anniversary of her company. La Farruca, with its dramatic fast-footwork, is usually reserved for men. Performing alongside six dancers and accompanied by seven musicians, Baras, “a woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane” (The Guardian), claims La Farruca as her own. **** “A true star. She has that indefinable can’t-take-your-eyes-off-her quality” Metro “A formidable dancer” The Guardian "The unmistakable stamp of a flamenco superstar" Daily Telegraph “The super-talented flamenco diva, for there's no other word, is one of the most proficient dancers of her generation. Compact and powerful, she has awesome energy and laser sharp foot-work” Evening Standard

    The show was fantastic. Rich in culture, colour, passion, talent!! I loved that the talents of the team carried the whole show... with their voices, with instruments, with their bodies. What truly captured my attention was how the dance interacted with the music - a voice or an instrument. One would feed off the other, creating a performance full of volume and dimension. It was truly a creative masterpiece.

    I have never seen a flamenco show like that. Pure art. Sara Baras makes music with her feet and her team give the best of themselves 100%. Do not miss them if you have the chance.

    I thought it was an astonishingly generous and constantly entertaining mix of music, dance and spectacle..

  • Review Avatar Jul 8, 2019

    Amazing show, it's a very traditional (not very commercial) approach to Flamenco so you'll like it very much if you listen what's in there and what they are trying to communicate. It might be worth it to take tickets closer to the stage, as there are a lot of facial expression, body movement and interactions will be best appreciated from the right distance. I think the way she dance is amazing, but also the ballet squad is amazing. The music is played live on stage and this makes the performance standing above many many others. It's a full immersion experience about the close connection between the music, the rhythm, the body, the people, the culture.

    very good.

  • Review Avatar Jul 9, 2019

    Having never been to a flamenco show, we didn't know what to expect. I came with my mother. We enjoyed the performance, even though we agreed it's not our favourite style of dance. The setting, lighting and costumes were impressive. The dancers' technique - impeccable. And it's their passion that was contagious and made it enjoyable for us. Would have preferred a venue in West End.

    Amazing performance, great ambient

  • Review Avatar Jul 10, 2019

    Full of passion. We were absorbed for the whole show. Strong performances, dancers and musicians gave 110%. Costumes and lighting spot on. Over 2 hours performance with no break - excellent value for money and a thoroughly enjoyable night out.
