Overview

The most widely seen Flamenco Spectacle in the history of Barcelona.

Gran Gala Flamenco is a voyage through all that Flamenco offers, where you can find everything imagined in this art form: Castenets, Dress Train Sweeps, Fans, Precious and Sensual Costumes; all along with original music. This wonderful combination is the reason for the 18 years of uninterrupted programming.

Contrary to what takes place in the Tablaos, in Gran Gala Flamenco, the spectator enjoys spectacular choreography created by the most acclaimed companies of the present panorama of Catalan and Spanish dance.

A show that transports the spectator on a journey through the different “palos” (“rhythms”) of flamenco. A unique show, a succession of sensations, derived from rhythms that define flamenco art, an intangible heritage of humanity.

In this show, the spectator will be able to move through the different “palos” of flamenco (rhythmic patterns such as “bulería”, festive and happy, “solea”, solemn and concentrated, “alegría”, dynamic and fluid, “tango”, “guajira”, “farruca”). Introducing the new Catalonian generation of flamenco artists, Gran Gala Flamenco offers a perfect union of heart and soul, music and dance, passion and rhythm.

Venue Info

Palau de la Música Catalana - Barcelona
Location   C / Palau de la Música, 4-6

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a concert hall in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Designed in the Catalan modernista style by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, it was built between 1905 and 1908 for the Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 that was a leading force in the Catalan cultural movement that came to be known as the Renaixença (Catalan Rebirth). It was inaugurated February 9, 1908.

The project was financed primarily by the society, but important financial contributions also were made by Barcelona's wealthy industrialists and bourgeoisie. The Palau won the architect an award from the Barcelona City Council in 1909, given to the best building built during the previous year. Between 1982 and 1989, the building underwent extensive restoration, remodeling, and extension under the direction of architects Oscar Tusquets and Carles Díaz. In 1997, the Palau de la Música Catalana was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with Hospital de Sant Pau. Today, more than half a million people a year attend musical performances in the Palau that range from symphonic and chamber music to jazz and Cançó (Catalan song).

The Palau is located in the corner of a cramped street, Carrer Palau de la Música, and Carrer de Sant Pere Mes Alt, in the section of old Barcelona known as Casc Antic. Most of the other prominent modernista buildings, those designed by Antoni Gaudí, for example, are located in the chic 19th-century extension of the city known as the Eixample.

From the opening of the Palau de la Música Catalana in 1908 special attention was given to the promotion of local composers and artists. After World War I the Orquestra Pau Casals performed at the Palau, and among composers featured gave presentations of the music of Enrique Granados from 1921 onwards.
