Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company and South Florida Symphony Orchestra Present Amor Brujo

June 15 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$50 – $170

Experience the electrifying fusion of passion and rhythm as the world-renowned Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company, led by acclaimed dancer and choreographer Siudy Garrido, joins forces, once again, with Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso and South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) for the return of the critically acclaimed flamenco dance-theater production, Amor Brujo. The one-night-only event occurs on Saturday, June 15, at 8 p.m., at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Knight Concert Hall.

The star-studded production also features notable screen actor and Broadway star George Akram. Akram gained recognition for his portrayal of Bernardo in the hit Broadway revival of West Side Story from 2008-2011, making history for being in the longest-running Broadway production of West Side Story and winning a GRAMMY for Best Musical Theater album. Also featured is Latin GRAMMY nominee Argentina López, and acclaimed flamenco virtuoso José Manuel Álvarez.

This evocative collaboration brings to life the passionate narrative of Candela, a grieving widow who finds new love amidst the presence of her husband’s ghost. Based on “El Amor Brujo” by Manuel de Falla, Amor Brujo bridges the beauty of flamenco artistry and classical music, setting the stage for a mesmerizing journey.

In 2015, Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil commissioned Amor Brujo, which opened to four sold-out performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall. In 2018, a sold-out performance with South Florida Symphony Orchestra occurred at Miami’s Arsht Center.

For the 2024 performances, Siudy Garrido has restaged Amor Brujo and will premiere a new section that features flamenco compositions by José Luis de la Paz, inspired by the lead characters of “El Amor Brujo.” In the new section, Maestro José Luis dela Paz’s arrangements for Spanish guitar explore flamenco styles such as “Seguirilla” and “Guajiras,” adding depth and richness to the performance.
Tickets to Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company and South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of Amor Brujo at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Knight Concert Hall (1300 Biscayne Blvd, Miami) start at $50 and are on sale now at arshtcenter.org.
