The performance will be held on November 29 and 30 at Salesian Theatre, Don Bosco Street, Sliema. 

Under the direction of Ingrid Sciberras, the performance will feature flamenco dance with the participation of percussionist Jose Calderon from Seville, Spain, and guest artist Walter Vella on Saxophone. The programme will also include extracts from Bharat Natyam dance choreographed by Mavin Khoo for Alegria dancers.

‘Aire Flamenco’ will also pay tribute to Maltese dancer Sharon Sapienza and Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia, who have both given their life to flamenco and a lasting legacy. The show will also be making a contribution from its proceeds towards cancer research at the University of Malta, through the University Research Trust (RIDT).

Director of Choreography Estelle Bonello Sant is preparing most of the dances together with Ingrid Sciberras, Nicola Henson, Sara Bianchi, Ursula Farrugia, Ema Marie Attard and Claudia Karapanou.  The evening promises to be passionate, emotional, vibrant and colourful.
