Get ready for an unforgettable evening of dance, music and song under the stars. Hailed as "LA's most significant venue for flamenco" by LA Weekly and "Sizzling…the earth and fire of first-class flamenco" by the Los Angeles Times, the Fountain Theatre returns to the newly renovated Ford Theatres with an international line-up of renowned flamenco artists including bailaores/as (dancers) Reyes Barrios, Ricardo Chavez, Melissa Cruz, Jesus Muñoz, Mizuho Sato, Oscar Valero and Daniela Zermeño; cantaors (singers) Antonio de Jerez and Jesus Montoya; guitarristas Kai Nazero and José Tanaka; and percusionista Joey Heredia.
