When facets of Seville refract in my mind, I see brightly colored flamenco dresses swaying into the sparkling night. In their wake, the rhythmic sounds of clapping and deep singing move me in a way that clenches my throat at the raw emotion on display. No show evokes this feeling more than the flamenco show at Tablao Flamenco Pura Esencia. This venue stands out to me as the best flamenco show in Seville, and it is a show that I always come back to when friends and family come to visit me in Spain.
About the Flamenco Club and Show
Tablao Flamenco Pura Esencia is a small flamenco club that sits humbly on the bank of the Guadalquivir River in Sevilla’s lively Triana neighborhood. If you stroll past this establishment, you might miss it. It is small and not lavishly decorated, but the show offers the viewer an intimate and authentic experience that can be hard to find at many of Seville’s larger, more popular flamenco shows.
The show begins with a talented guitarist playing solo for a few minutes. This guitarist has played every time I have come to the show. He is exceptionally talented and one of my favorite acts of the show. After the solo, a flamenco dancer emerges slowly and mysteriously from behind the curtain. The viewers will then spend the next hour entranced by the flamenco dancers (there is usually a male and female that dance solo and then together) and the soulful, deep-throated singing of a flamenco singer.
Where to buy tickets
Even though I would love to throw in an affiliate link here, unfortunately, my partners don’t offer the best ticket options for this particular experience. The only way to book a front-row ticket is through the venue’s website, and the front-row tickets are worth the extra splurge for more space and unobstructed views. However, you can see the dancers no matter where you sit. You can also book a dinner or a dinner and tour of Triana option. These additions are relatively new, so I have yet to try them, but they look fantastic.
When you arrive at the club, you will be seated by the host and offered a choice of beer, wine, or water to drink. However, remember that because the show is an hour long with no intermission. You should sip slowly to avoid having to use the restroom in the middle of the show! Once the show is over, you can take pictures with the dancers and meet them so stick around for some great photo memories.
Overall, this show is an intimate experience, making it the best flamenco show in Sevilla. Attending a flamenco show in Seville is usually on every traveler’s bucket list, and you will leave the show feeling mystified and fulfilled.
