The gentleman is always properly dressed

Flamenco Festival 2006

The time of year has come when I ask for company for one (or more) of the perfomances sponsored by the Boston Flamenco Festival. The two troupes coming in January are Noche Flamenca (principals Soledad Barrio and Bruno Argenta pictured to the left) and Nuevo Ballet Espanol (in their Boston debut). There's also a photo exhibit and film series scheduled to run from the 15th to mon anniversaire I'd like to explore. The performances can be a bit spendy, but the exhibit and films are rumored to be free.

I plan to bliss out and then have wine - something deep red and luscious. You can too. If you're interested, let me know soon so I can buy tix and so we can make nefarious plans.
