Overview
More
The Tablao de Carmen pays tribute to the great flamenco dancer, Carmen Amaya, born in 1913 in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro which then existed in what is today Barcelona's Olympic Village. Carmen Amaya made her debut in 1929 before King Alfonso XII on the site which is today the Tablao de Carmen at the inauguration of Poble Espanyol de Montjuic. The Tablao offers a top quality pure flamenco show, a direct descendant of the tradition. It dynamically presents several of the most important palos or styles of flamenco so that the spectator can get to know the richness and variety of this art form. It also highlights its different forms of expression: instrumental, vocal and dance.

We went to the 22:30 show. The dancers, male and female, performed fantastically. An experience that shouldn’t be missed.

The food, atmosphere and service started the evening of very well. The music was great and the dancing was very impressive. The music and dancing were over too soon; some more pair displays would have been nice.

The male dancer was excellent as was the second female dancer. The show was not very long. Basically 3 dancers performed alone and one together. Because it was so short it as not a very good value.More

Really enjoyable show with talented dancers and musicians. Excellent tapas. There was plenty of food, so no need to order the full dinner. The potatoes and oxtail croquettes were especially delicious. The sangria was also very good.
