Aida Gomez, one of the world’s best known Spanish flamenco dancers, and her company will be performing their acclaimed show “Carmen” at the Plaza de Toros de Marbella on coming August 13 (Friday).

Carmen, the story of love and hate takes shape in Seville in the late nineteenth century. The protagonist Carmen is a beautiful Gypsy who woos a solder named Don Jose.
