For me it was a bit strange watching flamenco in such a luxurious place. The name, Palau de la Música, literally means “Palace of Music.” Flamenco, which is principally Andalusian, was everywhere in Granada. But it’s gypsy music! The very first time I saw flamenco, in fact, was when a troupe of 4 gypsies came into a bar in Granada to dance Flamenco for tips.
This was my Flamenco experience: gypsies dancing in front of the cathedral
Constructed between 1905 and 1908, it’s one of Barcelona’s many modernist architectural masterpieces with a beautiful raindrop stained glass ceiling.
But I suppose every “low art” form can be made “high art” (maybe with exception to Nascar). And high art it was; the dancers were fantastic.
