If you like real opera and enjoy hearing the human voice without amplification, avoid this show. Everything is miked, the two opera singers (soprano and tenor) were downright horrible, and the operatic selections bore little or no relation to the flimsy story the show attempted to tell. The three flamenco dancers - one female, two male - were impressive. The... More

All right, so locals and tourists will tell you that Flamenco is not what it used to be in the good old days, or that opera and flamenco don't jell, whatever..... If you're a first timer in Barcelona like we were, then a flamenco evening is a must and we thoroughly enjoyed ours at the Teatre Poliorama. We were given... More

This was a waste of precious time in my Barcelona visit. I have seen much better flamenco dancing and heard much better opera singing. The theatre building is a stunning piece of architecture inside which is a modern seating plan with absolutely no atmosphere. There are no other facilities within, you can't even buy a drink. There are numerous venues... More

Flamenco! I had not expected such a show. Feating Chicuelo on amazing, absolute world class spanish guitar, the dancers were literally giving 200%! The whole band and dancers delivered amazing dynamics and on beat flamenco. This was worth every minute. A memory for life.

Though the combination of Opera and Flamenco seemed incongruous, the fact that we were in the heart of Spain and Flamenco’s birthplace was sufficient to counter any doubts, so we reserved tickets for what we thought would be a performance at the Palau de la Musica – our first disappointment. The photograph on the booking site had set the dancers... More

A small theater on La Rambla, which is easy to find, and we really enjoyed our first experience of flamenco. The musicians and singers were all good, and I couldn't take my eyes off the dancers! They were superb! I would recommend this show to all.

We managed to get catch of the shows here while in Barcelona. No doubt that it doesn't have the avant-garde architectural designs like most theaters in Europe, but it definitely serves its purpose of featuring some of the best shows which is Barcelona y Flamenco. If you are in La Rambla area, check out this theater and catch a show,... More

The two men-dancers told the story with engagement to the fullest (5stars) but the rest of the crew looked either bored or newbies. The live singers volume level was very unstable- either they song to near the microphone (too loud) or not at all (too low)... Missing the authentic surroundings and the lack of engagement I wouldn't say it's 40€... More

I saw the GranGala Flamenco show here whilst on holiday. It was a spur of the moment decision as I passed the tourist information centre. The dancers were very good, however the drummer looked bored, and at one point when one of the dancers took over the stage and danced for ages the other dancers were nudging one another and... More

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
