Maria Osende Flamenco brings fiery passion to Valentine’s Day

by on February 3, 2014
This February, celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend at the Fredericton Playhouse with a passionate dance performance. Maria Osende Flamenco: Sublime promises to turn up the heat on Sunday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Inspired by the manifestation of a lucid dream, Sublime fuses hot, passionate flamenco withopera and blues, taking you on a journey that ebbs between beauty and passion; magic moments and the true essence of “duende” (flamenco soul).

Born and raised in Madrid, Maria Osende became one of the youngest members of the National Ballet of Spain at the age of 15. In 2003, Osende moved to Canada, taking Halifax by storm and turning it into an international flamenco hotspot.

Osende is the artistic director, choreographer and principal dancer of the Maria Osende Flamenco Company. She also teaches at her dance school and is the founder and artistic director of Atlantic Flamenco Productions, presenters of Halifax’s Fall for Flamenco Festival.

Osende will be joined by a company of four superb dancers and some of the region’s best musicians during Sublime, for a flamenco experience you won’t soon forget.

Add even more romance to your weekend with an Absolute Beginner Spanish Dance/Flamenco class, offered through the Playhouse’s Experience More! program. Click up your heels to the fire of flamenco with this highly expressive dance form on Sunday, February 16 from 1:30-3 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall. A partner is optional; register through the Playhouse box office.

Tickets for Maria Osende Flamenco are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at
