In what is likely to be the highlight of Flamenco 2007, the month-long festival sponsored by the Instituto Cervantes de Chicago in collaboration with various City of Chicago offices that spotlights some of Spain’s most popular flamenco dance and music stars as well as cutting-edge flamenco films, exhibitions, lectures and workshops across the city, the internationally award-winning Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater returns to the Auditorium Theatre for a special anniversary program that will feature the full forty-member company in an all-Flamenco Drama and Cuadro concert with special guest flamenco musicians Paco Fonta and Pansequito, highlighting choreographed flamenco segments by Dame Libby Komaiko, flamenco legend Manolete, Timo Lozano, Maria Alba, Paco Alonso and Juan Mata and Ana González, founding members of the National Ballet of Spain.
