We did the show + tapas menu, thinking it would grant us the best seats. While that didn't seem to make a difference (but we still had good seats), I was also pleasantly surprised by the food. You get the entire tapas menu and a pitcher of sangria or bottle of wine to share. The stage/setting was intimate and I felt that all views no matter where you sat were probably all fine. 3 dancers (4 if you count the Creative Director also participating) danced mostly solo, but also together, for almost an hour with a short break in between. This was my first flamenco show, and I still don't know everything there is to know about it, but I thought the dancers were phenomenal. The mood was set by 2 singers and a guitarist, and you could really tell that each of the dancers danced by the way each song made them feel. I didn't get the impression their dance was really choreographed, which I can have a greater appreciation for. We did not arrive early enough, but it also seemed the Poble Espanyol area would definitely be worth exploring before the show. We did the early show, and were able to do a very nice sunset walk through Montjuic Park afterwards. I would definitely visit El Tablao de Carmen again!
