La Jolla Music Society continues this season’s dance series with “Gala Flamenca” at the Spreckels Theatre on Thursday, March 13 at 8 p.m. Directed by Ángel Rojas, “Gala Flamenca” brings together four of the world’s most celebrated flamenco artists direct from Spain. Antonio Canales, one of Spain’s most powerful flamenco dancers; Carlos Rodriguez, choreographer of Nuevo Ballet Español; riveting Karime Amaya, grandniece of Carmen Amaya; and the young sensation Jesús Carmona. Together, they will showcase masterful choreography, dramatic vocals and seamless compás (flamenco rhythm) highlighting the best of modern flamenco. La Jolla Music Society enhances the concert-going experience by presenting “Preludes” – pre-concert chats and performances – prior to each performance. This prelude will feature an informal conversation with dancers from “Gala Flamenca” at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20-$75 and are available through the La Jolla Music Society ticket office by calling (858) 459-3728, or visiting www.LJMS.org.
