“One of today’s great dancers of any genre.” —  The New York Times

Hailed by critics for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances, Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca present flamenco in its purest form — with all the passion and fury.

Searching for Goya, Noche Flamenca’ newest work, is inspired by the drawings and paintings of Francisco Goya, a celebrated late 18th and early 19th-century Spanish painter.

Integrating live performance and video projection, award-winning principal dancer Soledad Barrio, a company of dancers, singers, and musicians explore the many ways in which the master painter responded to the turbulent social and political changes occurring in the world around him. 

Formed in 1993 by Artistic Director Martín Santangelo and his wife, Soledad Barrio, Noche Flamenca has developed into one of Spain's most successful flamenco companies. With annual seasons in New York City and Buenos Aires, and return engagements at theatres around the world, the company has a dedicated global audience.

Since its beginning, Noche Flamenca's goal has been to maintain the essence, purity, and integrity of one of the world's most complex and mysterious art forms. All aspects of flamenco — dance, song, and music — are interrelated and given equal weight in Noche Flamenca, creating a true communal spirit within the company — the very heart and soul of flamenco.
