Irit Stark’s original show “Flamenco Opera fusion” is a unique, synergic combination, of two seemingly opposite arts: the Flamenco -  that grew from the bottom, from the bleeding hearts of the striving people of Andalucia. And the Opera - that grew from above: the knowledgeable scholars in the Academy of Florence.

This fusion show brings a new exciting and whole sound with a message of tolerance and mutual respect.

Irit Stark and the Flamenco artists that cooperate with her, perform this show in Festivals as well as public and private venues around the world.
