Benise's Fuego! - Spirit of Spain

  • The Orpheum Theatre-Memphis (map)

Two performances: at 2:30p and 7:30p

2018 marks the year guitar virtuoso Benise (Buh-ness-say) unveils his new multi-cultural stage show FUEGO! with all new music, costumes, and choreography!

Benise’s FUEGO! features the passion and grace of Flamenco dancing combined with fiery Spanish guitar. A beautifully charming and romantic Spanish village set is the backdrop as Benise reinvents the classics that celebrate Spain — Granada, Adagio, Malaguena, Asturias, and Aranjuez to name a few.

Benise, armed with his Spanish guitar and backed by a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, captures world music at its best, with a show that appeals to people of all ages, cultures and musical backgrounds. An unprecedented and spectacular adventure through Cuban Salsa, Spanish Flamenco, Argentine Tango, Parisian Waltz, Brazilian Samba, and more!

A former street musician, Benise began composing original works with powerfully emotional arrangements that are both wild and refined, producing a sound that is as edgy and exotic as it is romantic and sensual. Benise’s Emmy Award-winning show has toured throughout 16 countries over the last 12 years, performed on the No. 1 rated show in America, Dancing With The Stars, and has toured across the USA multiple times. FUEGO! will air on PBS in June 2018, marking Benise’s fifth PBS Special.
