The Festival de Jerez, one of the foremost and longest-running flamenco and Spanish dance festivals in the world, is usually a live event at the historic Villamarta Theatre in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. This year because of safety concerns and travel restrictions from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the festival administration decided to reduce the number of productions normally scheduled, reschedule the event from February and March to May, and hold all of the performances online.
The festival celebrates its 25th anniversary Sunday-Monday, May 9-17, and features these performances:
- Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía’s 25th Anniversary, Sunday, May 9, 11:30 a.m. Pacific time, 2:30 p.m. Eastern
