“GREAT SHOW!” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Essential Flamenco

Essential Flamenco
Ranked #3 of 147 Concerts & Shows in Madrid
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: From 5 to 6 artist on stage: Two dancers with a singer, a guitarrist, percussion and sometimes a violin. Shows every day (Mondays closed) at 20:30 and at 22:00. Since its beginnings, Flamenco has evolved in hidden places. It is danced and sung in private, in the presence of a select group of friends, without any amplification. Often, a brick cellar would be chosen, due to its wonderful acoustics. This is the authentic, unvarnished performance that we seek to recreate: a man and a woman dancing, a singer, a guitarist and percussion, sounds and shadows on ancient brick-lined cellar walls, all in a show lasting one hour. Welcome to Essential Flamenco.

“GREAT SHOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I wanted to watch Flamenco during my visit to Madrid, but didn't want to end up in a "Touristy" kind of show… so I asked around and a couple of Spanish friends told me to come to Torero, and I have to say I loved it! From beginning to end! Awsome show, great atmosphere and delicious drinks!

“Excellent Flamenco experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

The show was amazing and definitely something to experience if you are staying in Madrid.

Obviously sitting as close to the front as possible in this intimate venue is best. We went with a large group and were seated at the back. Although there is a step up it is still hard to see the dancers' feet.

Some other audience members really frustrated me by holding their cameras up in the air to record the show, thus interfering with our view further. Chronic photo-taking and use of flash cameras should be better monitored to ensure everyone can equally enjoy the show.
