As the heir to the famous Farruco dynasty in Spain, Farruquito is hailed as nothing short of a superstar. Critics have found it impossible to describe his performances without resorting to multiple superlatives: Explosive! Fiery! Astounding! A leading interpreter of “puro” Gypsy flamenco, a distinctive tradition that eschews more recent trends, he commands the stage with unparalleled prowess. In the eponymous Farruquito, his NAC debut, he is joined by musicians, dancers and singers in a flawless collaboration that will undoubtedly result in countless curtain calls. Did you know? In 2003, he was included on People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful List.
