About the Show

Essential Flamenco is held in Sala Torero in La Calle de la Cruz in Madrid, just a few minutes from the Puerta del Sol and the famous Plaza Mayor. The venue holds nightly flamenco shows and the performances - featuring flamenco dance, singing, guitar and percussion - give the spectator an authentic show at a reasonable price. The production lasts 60 minutes and is directed by the renowned dancer La Mistela, who has received the National Flamenco Award.

Essential Flamenco takes the viewer on a journey to the roots of flamenco: from its inception, flamenco has flourished in intimate settings. Artists danced and sang before a small group of friends without any amplification or microphones. The spots were often cellars and caves made from bricks, which offered excellent natural acoustics. It is in this spirit that La Mistela has created  authentic and genuine show consisiting of two dancers, a singer, guitarist, violinist and percussionist.

La Mistela is a well known dancer who was once received the highest compliment from el Farruco (another famous dancer) when he said "You are like mistela (a typical sweet wine from Andalucia), sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, but always with feeling and emotion". Honored with the National Critics Flamenco Award, La Mistela has performed in Tokyo, Paris, Rome and Seville. He served as the principal dancer in the production of Carmen with Salvador Távora as well as El Amor Brujo, with Mario Maya. His artistic direction of the show ensures a quality performance. The cast consists of Juan El Mistela and Rocío Martín González (dancers), Miguel El Rubio (singer) Camarón de Pitita (guitar), Fernando García Rico (violin) and Lucky Losada (percussion).

The two stages are protected by methacrylate screens and there are air extractors which constantly renew the air in the venue.


While on our honeymoon, my wife did research on some top things to do in Madrid. Flamenco was near the top of every recommendation online. We booked tickets in advance. For roughly $35 USD it includes a ticket for a 1 hr show and a Sangria(or soda/water if you don’t drink). It had 3 dancers, a guitarist, and a vocalist. Roughly 6-7 acts. All amazing and even a brief Flamenco history to get you started. I’d highly recommend.
It is a beautiful thing when you discover, in Madrid, a smaller flamenco venue that is pure quality. Incredible artists performing, excellent hospitality at the bar, a truly authentic experience. I adored the performance here. Having watched flamenco all across Andalucía as well as Madrid (as an expat who lives here), this is a wonderful discovery! I’ll be back. Muchísimas gracias por una experiencia fenomenal.
Totally enjoyed the intimate feeling of this show. Small space downstairs where the show takes place. Fantastic performers and the bartender and host upstairs are welcoming. Appreciated that each person and musician has their moment throughout the show.
One of the most amazing performances. Great talented performers and amazing hosts and great drink. Biggest glass of jack and coke I'd ever had lol. 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!
