Benise, “The Prince of Spanish Guitar,” takes us on a romantic and exotic journey of music and dance that celebrates the fire, passion, and spirit of Spain. Benise adds his signature guitar twist on such classics as “Granada,” “Malaguena,” “Moonlight Sonata,” “Asturias” and “Adagio.”
A beautiful and charming Spanish courtyard is the backdrop as the traditions of music and dance are reinvented. Benise, armed with his Spanish guitar, is backed by a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers. Show directed and choreographed by Alexandre Magno (Madonna, Academy Awards, Jennifer Lopez). PBS Special directed by Nigel Dick (Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Celine Dion).
Benise handpicked the Gitanas, the dancers in Fuego!, from a global pool of brilliantly diverse talent. Breathtaking couture fashion and innovative staging and choreography give Spanish dance a fresh and luminous makeover. Fuego! captures world music at its best, with a show that appeals to the hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures and musical backgrounds. The Emmy award-winning show that has toured the world can now be seen at the Campbell Heritage Theatre.
