Time before the festival starts


The XII International Flamenco Festival ¡Viva España! is cocluded

During 6 days the Flamenco House "Flamenqueria" rejoiced all flamenco lovers with a variety of activities included in the program of the Festival. It started with the contest where flamenco dancers from all Russia competed for the award "Golden Centaurita-2013" in five nominations. During two days the participants demonstrated to Spanish jury their skills, charisma and virtuosity. After the announcement of the results the prize-winners performed on the Day of Spain at the Design Factory "FLACON". It is difficult to describe with words what atmosphere was on that day, but it is obvious that there was no one who would not have participated in the fair, workshops, lottery of tickets to Spain or national gourmet food tasting. The fiesta at "FLACON" was concluded with a splendid tablao-party together with the Spanish jury and invited guests.

The next stage of the festival was a concert program that was probably the most-anticipated for the flamenco community. Three unforgettable performances created a real furor; the audience will remember it forever. Up to now there was no theatre that collected flamenco stars of this magnitude at the same stage! Eva Yerbabuena, Rocío Molina and Farruco - these are the artists who have conquered the State Academic Maly Theater with their undoubted skills proving again that they are really the best flamenco dancers of our time.




Undoubtedly, because of its size and high level, the Festival "¡Viva España!" provoked a strong reaction not only in the professional flamenco dance world, but also in the media. A press conference which took place to mark the opening of the concert program proved that bringing together a large number of both Russian and Spanish journalists: the Spanish news agency «EFE», “RIA-Novosti", "Voice of Russia", "Gazeta.ru," and many others. The questions were answered by Manuel Hernandez Gamallo, the Cultural Counselor of the Embassy of Spain in Moscow,  Eva Yerbabuena, a flamenco dance star, Anton Sukhanov, the director of the XII International Flamenco Festival "¡Viva España!" and Urbano Millan Cozar, the head of the production company «Vengaya produccion». Judging by the relaxed atmosphere and easy communication, all the participants of the press conference were satisfied.

Thus, all these six days of the festival flew by: bright, fast, energetic and lively according to the philosophy of the flamenco art. But there is still a whole year to get ready for the XIII International Flamenco Festival "¡Viva España!" which will be more emotional than ever.
