Authentic Flamenco tradition meets the symphony orchestra for an experience like no other!
We’re bringing the Flamenco experience to the Sydney Opera House in a new partnership with guitarist Juan Carmona and his troupe of fellow artists: guitars, double bass, flute, percussion, singer and dancer. The Juan Carmona Septet will begin the concert with a mesmerising display of traditional Flamenco. After interval the orchestra will join them on stage for Carmona’s “Flamenco Symphony” – vivid and intense.
“I’ve known and worked with Juan Carmona for many years,” says David Robertson, “and as an amateur guitarist myself, my admiration for him knows no bounds! This is a musician whose pedigree is that of royalty in the Flamenco tradition and there is simply nothing on the guitar that he cannot play with incredible ease and virtuosity.”
Chief Conductor David Robertson confidently predicts "it's going to be a great party" with Flamenco royalty Juan Carmona.Read More
