Antonio Gades' Fuenteovejuna

I've wanted to go and see the annual Flamenco Festival shows at Sadler's Wells for a long time so I was really excited when I got hold of tickets for last night's performance of Fuenteovejuna by the Antonio Gades Company.

A 'folk-dance drama', it is adapted from a play about a true 15th century Andalusian peasant rebellion against a tyrannical local nobleman. The period costumes and folk dance sequences really evoked an old European farming village (I loved the wedding dance). My favourite bits though were definitely the flamenco dance and music parts. The singing! The rhythm! The lightning footwork! ~♥~
