Following a critically acclaimed run this summer, Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca's Antigona will return to New York for a six week engagement, December 11-January 23. This visually arresting adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone, which originally opened on July 21, was declared a New York Times Critics' Pick by Laura Collins-Hughes, who wrote that "a haunting, distant classicism coexists with sweaty, unmediated corporeality in this dance drama." In The Village Voice, Miriam Felton-Dansky called it "raucously eloquent," while Apollinaire Scherr in the Financial Times wrote that Noche Flamenca "has created a powerful marriage of Greek tragedy and flamenco." The New Yorker's Joan Acocella declared: "Never, until I saw Santangelo's ensemble, their heels stamping, their arms cutting through the air, had I seen a chorus whose physical force could support the fate-heavy songs that Sophocles wrote for his plays."

Wolfe in The New York Times has declared the company "brilliant," and said that "Soledad is a once-in-a-lifetime performer who combines overwhelming physicality and spirituality."
