Carmen Passion Flamenca is a show that has the talent and know- treading the boards of 10 major scenic processional Spanish dance and flamenco accompanied by four musicians with the same skills and professional aptitude .

The cast take us through a quick general view of Bizet’s Carmen works in a time of 45 minutes, which makes the work fresh and light , so the audience is keep the interest and not lose the attention of the show . The rapid execution of this work does not stop us to show the key moments such as their Habanera , the part of the Tavern and Tabacalera among others giving us margins to play with the solos, the duet and group numbers creating different choreographic scenic environments based on simple light or scenery. Although it is a smaller version of the work does not lose at any time their essence and their history and have a Carmen played by a prima ballerina as is Maria Lopez . The choreography is done by Manuel Diaz , a young talented and creative and which has won First Prize in the 2006 Madrid choreographic competition for their proposal Essence. The rest of the corps de ballet and no less talented cover the roles of Don José , Manolita , Zuniga and recognized young Jose Maldonado plays the roll of Toreador. Ultimately Carmen Pasión Flamenca is a proposal of the traditional Carmen but in this case with strength and good work of great young artists.

This work has a traditional second part. The Suite Flamenca makes a journey through various “palos” and shows the public as flamenco although rooted respect has evolved over the years. Men will show strength and courage in Seguirillas and  Women will be female and elegant in Alegrias. Full cast enjoyed and will enjoy the public by Tangos and Bulerías and our amazing guest artist will impress audience in his solo moment. It is a proposal whose only intention is that the public can enjoy the essence of flamenco in the young but mature performers with no other ambition than the full enjoyment of the beholder.
