About
From 6 artist on stage: Two dancers with a singer, a guitarrist, percussion and a violin or flute. Since its beginnings, Flamenco has evolved in hidden places. It is danced and sung in private, in the presence of a select group of friends, without any amplification. Often, a brick cellar would be chosen, due to its wonderful acoustics. This is the authentic, unvarnished performance that we seek to recreate: a man and a woman dancing, a singer, a guitarist, a violin and percussion, sounds and shadows on ancient brick-lined cellar walls, all in a show lasting one hour. Welcome to Essential Flamenco.

Quintessential Spain 🇪🇸- Must See!
Amazing! We enjoyed everything about this Flamenco Show. After experiencing Flamenco Dancing for the first time in Valencia, 🇪🇸 Spain, we decided to try a show here in Madrid. This venue is very intimate with "No bad seats". The musicians and dancers were very talented and the show was so very entertaining. Everyone at the show was friendly and welcoming. It was an enchanting evening to be sure! If you are in Madrid, check out this show!

Hello robynp200. We want to highlight the "this venue is very intimate" part. Because that's how authentic flamenco was 100 years ago. It was not a spectacle of public attendance, it was given privately, at gypsy family parties; and that spirit, welcoming, is what we try to reproduce. Thanks for your comment!

Flamenco magnifico!

Loved the show! They gave us a complimentary drink beforehand (I chose Sangria), and then escorted us to the small theater below. The dancers, singers and musicians were excellent, and we had a blast!

Authentic, outstanding flamenco!
Sep 2021
Essential Flamenco is a must see in Madrid! Upon arrival at the venue, we were seated and offered a drink (included with admission). We headed downstairs just before the performance. The ensemble performs in a brick-lined cellar. This small, intimate setting provides a unique experience. The performers were outstanding.

Do not miss this authentic experience!

Great show, very authentic, would definitely take more visitors. My daughter (10) was looking for more ruffly dresses of a Sevillana, but she still enjoyed it.

Outstanding raw performance in an intimate setting. A small venue where you sit close and experience the essence of Flamenco. The entire family enjoyed the show, highly recommended.

Excellent flamenco in a cozy atmosphere.

I highly recommend Essential Flamenco. It is located near Sol Station in a lively area. I was in Madrid for only a short time and seeing flamenco was at the top of my list. Thoroughly enjoyed the musicians and dancers and the atmospheric space.

Flamenco show
Mar 2020 • Couples
We booked this show online as it wasn't far from our apartment. We arrived a little early to find the ticket came with a free beverage. Nice! The show was fantastic & a lovely way to end our trip to Madrid. We've seen flamenco in Seville & Granada and this was really good. The room was small and gave the show a warm atmosphere, close to the performers. The musicians & singer were great but the dancer was amazing. Her footwork & passion was outstanding. I would recommend this show to anyone. The area is also full of restaurants and character. Lovely to walk around after the show & stop for a drink & tapas.

Excellent Flamenco
Mar 2020 • Couples
Fabulous musicians and dancers, shame more people weren't there to watch them but we went at 7.30pm on a Monday so there were only about 15 in the audience. Well worth the money for this 1 hour show.
