Booked the night before on a whim and I am glad we did as it was a wonderful performance. The majority of the music is prerecorded but it is interspersed with songs from a live flamenco group. The theatre is a quaint little place, don’t...More

My wife and I saw thisshow that the Teatro Reina Victoria last week. Since the theater is small there is no need to spend extra on seats in the first nine rows. Also, we purchased our tickets the day before the performance we say.

I've done several flamenco shows in Madrid and this was a different spin. This is a flamenco show to the Opera Carmen. I was worried at first when the music and singing was pre-recorded but after awhile a live flamenco band joined the dancers who...More

We happen to drop in and we loved the decor. The waiters were friendly but the food was the ultimate. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the pizza was crisp and tasty. The pepper salad was well seasoned and the anchovies were crispy.

It was a marvellous performance. This show is "flamenco based". However, if this is the only show you will see, then you will not get your dose of the "Real Flamenco", which is a spectacular dance form. For that you must go to Las Tablas...More

Small venue, relatively short compared to say a classical opera or concert, but DIVINE. Its not always on at the theatre all year round, but if you can catch it, please do. Its also very cheap. Check out the theatre schedule online. http://www.teatrorialto.es

By chance we were given a flyer to this show. It was a great experience and the use of incorporating the flamenco into Carmen was brilliant. The emphasis on the story is more through the interpretation of dance than the singing in a traditional opera....More

We went to the 7pm show and it was well over an hour and a half long with no interval. The dancing was spectacular and the costumes very colourful, but some of the dances seemed to go on forever and it became repetitive. The mixture...More

Went to see the Spanish Ballet Flamenco of George Bizet's Carmen. It is fantastic fun evening were the dancers and music is fantastic. Great Show that is fun and entertaining as well as a great contemporary rendition of Carmen.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
