“The Prince of Spanish Guitar” Brings Latin Riverdance to Boca


BOCA RATON, FL – Fresh off his blockbuster 34-city tour through China and over 100 performances in 2015, Benise (pronounced Buh-nes-say) will bring his brand new electrifying multicultural stage show, “Strings of Passion,” to the Mizner Park Amphitheater, 590 Plaza Real, in Boca Raton on Feb. 27, at 7:30 p.m. Heralded as “The Prince of Spanish Guitar,” Benise is known worldwide for classic rock anthems, brilliantly fused with fiery Spanish guitar and dance. His show has been called “The Latin Riverdance.” Backed by a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, “Strings of Passion” captures world music at its best, with a show that appeals to hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures and musical backgrounds. “Strings of Passion” is an unprecedented and spectacular adventure through Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa and Brazilian Samba that raises the standards of live performance to a fresh new level of originality with dancing that is equally mysterious, sensual and festive. As the composer, guitarist and creative force behind the event, Benise says the show’s ambition is “to take people on a musical journey, pushing the boundaries of traditional Flamenco/Spanish guitar while combining the elements of dance and theater. This show is a celebration of culture –the culmination of all the shows we’ve done over the last 10 years.” The dancers in “Strings of Passion,” known as The Gitanas, were carefully handpicked from a global pool of some of the most brilliantly diverse talent to be found. Breathtaking couture fashion and innovative staging and choreography give Spanish dancing a fresh and luminous makeover.
