Benise to Return to Miami-Dade County Auditorium in October

The Spanish guitarist will perform on October 8th.

Benise and his Emmy award-winning show will return to Miami-Dade County Auditorium (MDCA) on Oct. 8, 2022 at 8 p.m., with a beloved classic production, "Spanish Nights."

Backed by a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, Benise takes the audience on a musical journey through Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa, Brazilian Samba, Parisian Waltz, exotic drumming, and more.

Hailed as the "Prince of Spanish Guitar" and one of the greatest nouveau flamenco guitarists in the world, Benise's music has always been a journey - from his humble beginnings as a street performer, to world tours, to being featured on one of the #1 rated show in the USA, "Dancing with the Stars."

"With this show I want to take the audience on an escape to Spain," says Benise. "I want them to be transported to a beautiful Spanish courtyard filled with Flamenco dancers, stunning costumes, and fiery Spanish guitars."

"Spanish Nights" artfully fuses classic Rock anthems from Led Zeppelin and AC/DC with Spanish guitar and dance to bring a fierce intensity to these new interpretations. In addition, Benise adds his signature touch to classics such as "Ave Maria," "Moonlight Sonata," "Clair de Lune," and Vivaldi's "Summer" from The Four Seasons.

MDCA is thrilled to be presenting the theatrical world music and dance spectacle that has been dubbed "The Latin Riverdance." Through its story, its music, and its production, "Spanish Nights" is a truly remarkable show for the whole family that serves to inspire others to passionately follow their dreams.

Benise "Spanish Nights" takes place October 8 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices range from $29 to $99.
