October 21, 8:00 pm11:00 pm

$50

Farruquito (Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya), heir to the most renowned flamenco dynasty, is the “greatest flamenco dancer of this new century” (The New York Times). His performances are powerful, raw, true expressions of pure flamenco.

Son of flamenco singer Juan Fernández Flores “El Moreno” and dancer Rosario Montoya Manzano “La Farruca,” and the eldest of four brothers, Farruquito was immersed in the purest form of flamenco founded by his grandfather, “El Farruco,” one of the greatest dancers in the history of flamenco. His first international stage appearance was at the age of four, on Broadway in New York City alongside his grandfather in the hit show Flamenco Puro. At the age of 11, he was featured in the film Flamenco, produced by the legendary film director, Carlos Saura, that launched Farruquito’s career and positioned him amongst the most elite flamenco artists of the world. He has created, choreographed, and directed over 15 works since the age of six, and is celebrated for his prodigious artistry, incredible personality, profound poetry, and captivating beauty.
