Default Beautiful flamenco with horse & gymnastics show

Hello

I hope you don't mind me posting this, it is just that before we visit the Figueres area soon I am trying to track down a show we saw last year in the Empuriabrava area.

The show comprised flamenco dancing, modern music and older music, with horses who also danced in time to the music.

It also consisted of a barbeque and sangria included in the price.

I'm trying to see if this attraction is still in existance so we can visit again this year, but can't seem to track it down on the tourist information sites for the area.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction please to a website perhaps?

many thanks

Thanks for the links unfortunately it doesn't seem to be either.

The reason I am trying to track it down is that during the show, one of the flamenco dancers stands solo and plays the violin, to a beautiful classical piece of music that I can't remember the name of, but which brings a lump to my throat every time I hear it playing. Whilst she plays the horse dances around slowly, it was really magical.

I'd like the name of this piece of music so I thought I would email them, if I can find them that is.

I think they're a well known company as they have won awards for their gymnastics on horseback. Will have to keep on googling!

Cant help with the show I'm afraid

If you're going to Figueres then you really need to see Port Lligat as well. You may have already done it, but it's a lovely area

Looks lovely, thanks for those photos.

Dilemma solved, the piece of music is called "Canon in D" by German composer Johann Pachebel.

I've been playing it over and over again today since downloading, it really is very calming.

Thanks to all for your replies.
