Juan Siddi Flamenco Theatre Company to Perform at St. Augustine Amphitheatre

Juan Siddi Flamenco Theatre Company will perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on March 15th and 16th, an event hosted by the Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre (FOSAA).

Under the artistic direction of Spanish choreographer Juan Siddi, some of flamenco’s most unique and creative musicians, singers and dancers, from Spain and the United States, bring their talent to the stage with world-class performances that inspire audiences with exhilarating passion.

Since 2007, acclaimed Spanish choreographer Juan Siddi has brought together exhilarating, authentic, international flamenco singers, musicians and dancers for unforgettable performances that have thrilled audiences worldwide.

Recognized for his remarkable stage talent, artistry, and stunning choreographies, the Santa Fe legend Maria Benitez passed the artistic torch to Juan Siddi in 2008. Shortly thereafter, his Flamenco Theatre Company was selected to be the sole presentation for the acclaimed flamenco summer seasons at the Maria Benitez Theatre in Santa Fe, NM. The company’s dynamic shows have met with much success and astounding enthusiasm from national and international audiences, the local community and the press.

Juan Siddi Flamenco Theatre Company is committed to maintaining, preserving and innovating flamenco’s unique ethnic and cultural art form to audiences and communities worldwide. Flamenco music, song and dance is presented by the company with the passion and vision of today’s foremost artists in the field.

The mission of FOSAA is to bring greater visibility and increased usage of the Amphitheatre by the community. In addition to special events, FOSAA awards grants to schools and non-profits who wish to use the Amphitheatre, or bring students to the Amphitheatre for programs.
