El Corral del la Morería, pure flamenco show in Madrid

The dancers and musicians are so talented that they will leave you speechless. There is the option to come see the show + dinner and another option which includes the show and a drink. In the tablao, the entire audience is enraptured from the first notes of the spanish guitar to the final stomp of the flamenco dancer´s heel.

Flamenco at El Corral de la Moreria is definitely something everyone should experience at least once in their life!

The show lasts for 1:10 hours and has 9 artists: two leading male flamenco dancer, a leading female flamenco dancer, three flamenco singers, and two guitarists. The show has been designed and choreographed by our artistic director Blanca del Rey, winner of the National Flamenco Award.
