Disney’s Aladdin

Friday at 7 pm
Saturday & Sunday at 2 pm

Cardboard Playhouse presents Disney’s Aladdin Dual Language Edition features the Academy Award-winning score from Disney’s animated classic, with lyrics in both Spanish and English.

Disney’s Aladdin DLE features a revamped plot that creates dramatic necessity for the bilingual script. Our story begins centuries ago, when the royalty of Agrabah spoke one language, and the citizens another. Communication is impossible without translation… which is controlled by the evil vizier, Jafar. When the rebellious princess, Jazmin, and a delinquent street rat, Aladdin, meet in the marketplace, they find something special in one another. Together, they work to transcend the barriers between them and, with a little magic, help create a better future for themselves and for Agrabah.

This touching musical adventure will thrill both Spanish- and English-speaking audiences.
$10, $12, $15

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque: Compañía Manuel Liñán, ¡VIVA!

8 pm

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque presents Compañía Manuel Liñán in ¡VIVA!, a song to the freedom of movement, where the feminine essence is embraced through the masculine body, where gender roles, in a codified world like that of flamenco, are broken with joy and enjoyment, creating new terrains that, although unexplored, are not distant….

!VIVA! celebrates movement through the character of the female dancer. In a celebratory key, Liñán proposes the plurality of the dance, the different forms, and the singularity of each form. And he does it with six bailaores-bailarines, who are in charge of exploring and diving into this fascinating universe of the feminine, seen from the masculine, thus exposing these two identities which are both part of our own nature.

$40, $50, $70, $85

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque: Compañía Olga Pericet, La Espina

8 pm

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque presents Compañía Olga Pericet in La Espina que Quiso Ser Flor o La Flor que Soñó la Bailaora. From award-winning dancer Olga Pericet, Espina encompasses a personal journey through dance that comes from memory, wounds, past kisses, and time, where the real and the oneiric melt in a single space-time: the interior. Espina’s language delves into the roots of the unknown; sows new things; creates a universe where feminine and masculine, humorous and dramatic fit in equal parts; and encounters human lights and shadows. A gallery of dramatic games where the woman always appears powerful, a miscellany of sculpted images, where space is traversed, between beauty and ugliness, joy and bitterness, seclusion and sensuality, youth and decrepitude, all framed in a future of rhythms that move in a palo flamenco and its opposite.

$40, $50, $70, $85

Casa Flamenca presents Flamenco Without Borders, with Juani de la Isla

7:30 pm

Internationally known Juani de la Isla is a master flamenco guitarist from the island of San Fernando near the port city of Cádiz, in southern Spain. He began his musical education studying with the great flamenco singer Rafael Romero, has been a student of the celebrated flamenco guitarist Manolo Sanlúcar, and has also been trained in the gypsy flamenco style of Morón—a small pueblo in the heart of Andalucia’s flamenco country.

During his career, he has accompanied some of the greatest flamenco artists of this century, including singers Jose Mercé, Chato de la Isla, Juan Villar, Rancapino, Pansequito and Aguilar de Vejer, and dancers Javier Barón, Sara Baras and Manuela Carrasco. He has composed music for the flamenco dance company of Cristina Hoyos and for over a decade has been musical director for the popular flamenco singer “El Barrio.” His recording career includes participation on more than 100 albums with some of Spain’s finest flamenco artists, among them Jose Mercé, Joaquin Sabína, Paco Ortega, El Barrio and David de María. In 2015, he released his first solo CD, Libertad en Mis Manos. As a performer and teacher, Juani de la Isla has toured internationally.

His concert at the National Hispanic Cultural Center is an extension of Flamenco sin Fronteras, Casa Flamenca’s introductory series of workshops in the rhythms of flamenco for musicians working in all musical genres. Juani de la Isla’s residency at Casa Flamenca is co-sponsored by Instituto Andaluz de Flamenco, Patrimonio de la Humanidad, “All Flamenco,” Brilliant Sounds, La Isla Ciudad Flamenca, Venta de Vargas, and San Fernando, Cádiz. The 14 workshops offered will feature different flamenco rhythms, with participants exploring ways to integrate flamenco into genres with which they are more familiar, and extemporaneous performances encouraged. The culminating event of this genre-bending collaboration will include workshop participants and selected local artists performing with Juani de la Isla.
$20 w/ $2 discount for seniors, children 12 and younger, & NHCC members

Please note that this performance has been rescheduled from April 27.
