The recent presence of Sara Baras and her ballet flamenco company in the United States can be described as a resounding success, with both shows in the New York City Center and Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami reaching capacity. All the performances of Sombras had the response of the audience standing up along with long ovations that lasted for ten minutes.
The company of Sara Baras is already on to their next international stage, the Emirates Palace of Abu Dhabi, after receiving love and recognition from the public in New York and Miami, where the dancer was in charge of inaugurating the current edition of the Flamenco Festival with her last show. The New York City Center also celebrated their 75th anniversary.
