Set sail to Spain in a sea of frills, tassels and fiery red in Romance Flamenco.

Escape the dreary South Australian winter and venture to the sunny shores of Spain with Romance Flamenco, a fiery flamenco performance that is as quintessentially Spanish as it comes.

Showcasing the Spanish culture to local Adelaidians, Romance Flamenco is the latest production from local flamenco school Casa de Flamenco.

Audiences are treated to an intimate experience unlike any other, being seated on large tables to mingle over food and drinks with other spectators.

Sensual Spanish guitar riffs and echoing castanets emulate an exotic European atmosphere, transporting audiences on a journey of the senses.

The talented Aloysius Leeson serenades on the six-stringed guitar, pouring pure passion into each and every note as he tells a romantic musical tale through tender tones and sultry sounds.

Adding another layer to the acoustic audio is violinist Julian Ferraretto, who has a natural flair with the fiddle and brandishes the bow with a beautiful elegance.

It is El Titi de Algeciras who steals the show with his vivacious voice and sultry sensuality. Eminent in every elongated note is raw emotion and years of lived experience, giving audiences goosebumps and sending shivers down their spines.

Professionally trained classical singer Elizabeth McCall's hauntingly delicate vocals pair perfectly with the deeply masculine tenors of El Titi, the two coming together to form a dynamic choral duo.

Mesmerising audiences with their twirling tassels, ravishing red dresses and vibrant Spanish prints are flamenco dancing ensemble Kristy Manuel, Ana Otero and Laura Uhe, who release their fiery fury through their swift shimmying, fast-paced footwork and tantalising skirt twirling.

I was fortunate enough to be delighted to Romance Flamenco before embarking on a summer abroad in central Spain, and I found it closely mimicked the country's iconic authentic flamenco performances.

Romance Flamenco thrilled audiences at the Onkaparinga Arts Centre in Noarlunga for two exclusive evening performances at 8pm on Friday 12 Saturday 13 July.
