What people are saying about City Hall Theater
Although neither the hotel OR the cafe where we ate beforehand knew of this theater, we phoned the number and found directions. It is EASY to locate actually and quick walk if hotel based in city centre. don't be put off by the descent into gloomy underground passgeways! the theater is in basement BUT good stage with terrific seating all of which has good view of stage. presented as if at a campfire side, with ALL the performers SO involved in their own performing AND those of their fellows that you get drawn into the whole scenario. We speak no Spanish so couldn't understand the songs (would have been a great extra to have a small programme/flyer with song translations on it for non-Spanish speakers) BUT the raw energy and spectacular footwork of the 3 very different flamenco dancers was immensely powerful and mesmeric. For anyone who knows Asterix in Spain book....think Ole ! DO THIS SHOW !!
Not on time approx started 5 mins later but the show ended approx 53 mins. When we purchased it said have a drink. After we arrived the venue, we mentioned to the venue organizer, they were shocked. Then after discussed with manager said we could have a drink. Thought this point was not clear. Venue was okay as a theatre. Very English style underground theatre play. If you walked on the street, it would be easy pass by on the main street as at the corner of major streets. Dancers were excellent as we were flamenco practioner so we knew they were not trying to please most of the tourists but from the heart. For the price you paid compared to the capital of Spain to have a night of flamenco show. It was hard to beat!
Great show. Talented performers. Contagious joy. Cozy hall. Even the back seats have a very good view of the stage..Value for money.
We had a walking tour of the old Jewish quarter of Barcelona .The guide was interesting, knowledgeable and friendly.
