Sinfonia Flamenca
The Juan Carmona Septet with the SSO

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 and composer Juan Carmona and his troupe of fellow artists: guitars, bass guitar, flute, percussion, singer and dancer. The Juan Carmona Septet will begin the concert with a mesmerising display of original Flamenco in the traditional style. After interval the orchestra will join them on stage for Juan 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.”
