SIUDY FLAMENCO: BAILAORA – WITHIN ME, WITHIN YOU
October 8-10, 2021 at various times
Knight Concert Hall
Tickets: $25, $55, $75, $95*
After a successful world premiere in Miami in 2019, BAILAORA – WITHIN ME, WITHIN YOU returns by popular demand!
BAILAORA – WITHIN ME, WITHIN YOU traces the evolution of flamenco from a New World perspective. Award-winning choreographer and dancer Siudy Garrido is recognized for her contemporary work in flamenco. Her company has collaborated with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and flamenco stars Farruquito and Antonio Canales.
The music in BAILAORA pairs traditional flamenco instrumentation with synthesized sounds. The narrative takes an emotional journey through dance that results in a humanist and feminist commentary on self-invention and self-determination, revealing the vulnerability and inner strength of a warrior whose only voice is her art.

JONAS KAUFMANN is among the world’s most acclaimed tenors. Born in Munich, Kaufmann has been an international star since a breakout appearance in 2006 at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Singing in German, Italian, French and English, Kaufmann has performed lead roles in Otello, Tosca, Andrea Chénier, Carmen, Werther, Die Walküre, Lohengrin and many other classic operas at venues such as the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, La Scala, the Metropolitan Opera, the Wiener Staatsoper, the Paris Opera and the Sydney Opera House.
For his Arsht Center debut, Kaufmann will appear in recital, a style of performance he once described as “the royal class of singing” for the technical and emotional demands it places on a vocalist.
Zoetic Stage and Adrienne Arsht Center present
FRANKENSTEIN – South Florida Premiere!
By Nick Dear
Directed by Stuart Meltzer
October 14 – 31, 2021
Tickets: $50, $55*
Part of the 2021-2022 Theater Up Close series
One of the great horror stories of all time, Mary Shelly’s classic tale of gods and monsters still fascinates two hundred years after its 1818 publication! First presented at the National Theatre in London, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Nick Dear’s adaptation is highly theatrical and surprisingly relevant. Employing striking images and beautifully poetic language, the play explores the very nature of good and evil, brought to life with thrilling and heartbreaking results.
From the Creature’s first moments on stage, as he writhes naked out of an organic pod, the audience is swept into a breathtaking whirlwind of emotional storytelling through imagery and movement.
With daring and stylized staging, comes a humane, insightful retelling of the original story, focusing on the plight of the creature and his desperate journey to fit into a world that doesn’t want him. A theatrical event like none other.
