Having visited several other theatres, in Madrid, we booked for the tribute to Michael Jackson, "Forever", at this one. The theatre itself is a huge disappointment, being quite run-down and in desperate need of renovation, in places. Front of House was absolutely chaotic and even...More

Excellent blend of ballet and flamenco. Passion and flair to the performance and at 30 euro a ticket reasonably priced.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
