Contemporary flamenco star Ruben Olmo directs Spain's celebrated Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia dancers for three nights of Metafora at Sadler's Wells Theatre. Taking to the stage with a wave of fans, castanets and bata de cola dresses, the collective showcase the contrasts of the classical and folk elements of the Andalucian dance with disciplined technique from both the soloists and the ensemble. Solos include that of renowned sensual flamenco dancer, Pastora Galvan, and one of today's most exciting modern flamenco dancers, Rocio Molina.
