If you’re up for a show that’s both fascinating and soul-stirring, you’re in for a treat with Solera by Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company. Gracing the stage at Sadler’s Wells Theatre last night, this incredible performance celebrates flamenco in a way that mixes the wisdom of age with the energy of youth.

From the moment the curtains go up, you’ll feel like you’re in the heart of Spain’s flamenco tradition. But this isn’t just about the past; it’s also about how flamenco stays fresh and exciting today. Paco Peña, a master of flamenco guitar, leads the group with his amazing music, guiding both experienced performers and newcomers through a captivating journey of rhythm and passion.
