A special live flamenco show encore is set to return to Tsawwassen on Friday, Nov. 3 at the Equinox Theatre at South Delta Secondary.
Bev Mantovani, owner, and principal performer of Los Gitanos Spanish School of Dance is inviting all South Delta residents and friends to join her group of talented musicians, singers, and dancers for a one-night event of “Zapatos Rojos.”
“The event in June was an almost sold-out show,” said Mantovani. “After three years of not performing, the energy of the dancers and the audience were amazing. That’s why we are repeating the performance one final time. It takes much work and effort to present each of our shows. We normally perform for two nights in a row, therefore all of us were left wanting to present the show to our friends, family, and community for a second night.”
This magical story, set at a gypsy camp in Andalusia, tells the story of a woman who is willing to go to great lengths to retain the power and strength of her youth.
She makes a pact with a sorcerer to enchant these red shoes to allow her to dance as she has never danced before, but the pact comes with a cost.
“The story is dramatic and allows us to show a wide range of dances,” she said. “I am proud of my students as we can highlight their skills at all levels. We feature 30 students from ages eight to 86. Imagine this magnificent ensemble of local talent who show their love and dedication to this art form.”
Doors open at 7 p.m. and show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling 778-833-0447 or at: eventbrite.ca/delta.
