ALBUQUERQUE ― The National Hispanic Cultural Center and Jesús Muñoz Flamenco present the new production, Live!, at 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 26 and Saturday, Feb. 27, in the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Albuquerque Journal Theatre.
Tickets are $25, $40, $50, $60 and $75, with a $5 discount for students, seniors, and children 12 and under, and are available from the NHCC Box Office at 505.724.4771 or here.
Live! showcases the artistry of 12 internationally renowned dancers and musicians from Spain to Latin America. Participating performers have composed for prestigious organizations and popular artists including the Royal Seville Orchestra, Marc Anthony, and Andrea Bocelli.
Jesús Muñoz Flamenco takes a year-long hiatus from themed productions to dive into an exploration of ideas and the explosive dynamic of flamenco collaboration. Highlights of Live! combine exciting pieces from the past with never-before-seen works.
Jesús Muñoz has performed in 30 states across the U.S., as well as Mexico and Canada. In 2013 he was recognized as one of NYC’s influential artists in “100 Years of Flamenco in New York City.”
Previous productions at the NHCC have met with acclaim by critics and colleagues. “As long as artists such as Muñoz feel the undeniable calling to express this ancient message of human perseverance and bring it to a new generation, Flamenco will survive” said Jain Lemos, ABQ Todo review of ERA, March 2015.
“Just when you thought you had seen it all, Jesús Muñoz Flamenco seized the opportunity to take you on an unexpected journey! The Palladium Project took flamenco to a place it had never gone and it worked—flawlessly” said Joseph Wasson, Performing Arts Co-Director, National Hispanic Cultural Center, October 2015.
The National Hispanic Cultural Center is dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and advancement of Hispanic culture, arts, and humanities, and is a division of the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs.
