XIX Festival Flamenco Caja Madrid 2011.

Starting this Wednesday 2nd February is a 10 day festival of flamenco held the Teatro Circo Price in inconjunction with Caja Madrid. This year is the event's 19th edition and many of the biggest names in contemporary flamenco such as Carmen Linares, Juan Valderrama and Miguel Poveda, will be performing. Hommage will also be paid to the flamenco legend Enrique Morente, who passed away at the end of 2010. The programme for the event can be seen below:

If you are going to be in Madrid during the period of the festival, we recommend catching a show as it will be a much more authentic experience (and probably much cheaper!) than the tourist shows. Tickets for the big name performances at Teatro Circo Price will cost from 28€ upwards. There will also be some smaller performances as well as talks and recitals about flamenco music taking place at the Casa Encendida, where tickets cost 5€.

La Casa Encendida and El Teatro Circo Price are opposite each other on Ronda de Atocha (numbers 2 and 35 respectively), just a short hop from Atocha station and the Reina Sofía museum. Metro: Embajadores (L3, L5) or Atocha (L1).
