Nerja Caves Festival 2011Next Tuesday the 12th July sees the start of the 52nd edition of the famous Nerja Caves Festival, one of the most important music and dance events on the Costa del Sol.

Since the opening of this spectacular cave in 1960, this Festival has been held every year, attracting artists and musicians from all over the world. Thanks to its incomparable beauty and exceptional acoustics, the Nerja Caves attract thousands of spectators every year – approximately 800 people are seated every night in the “Sala de Ballet” auditorium to enjoy the very best music and dance shows.

This year, the festival will be split into four separate parts: An evening of Flamenco, an evening dedicated to music of the world, an evening of Spanish dance and opera and last, but by no means least, a lyrical concert.

The programme for the 5 day event is as follows:

Tuesday 12th July at 10 pm – Flamenco Evening

The Festival starts with a true andalucian flavour; Málaga flamenco dancer, Rocio Molina’s show “Danzaora”, winner of the 2010 Dance Prize.

Wednesday 13th July at 10 pm – Musicians of the World

This year, the festival is proud to announce the performance of Israeli singer, Noa, who will be interpreting her new musical project called “Noapoles”, a fusion of melodies from Naples – the singer actually lives in Italy – and music from her home country. Noa will be accompanied on stage by Gil Dor, Zahar Fresco and the Solis String Quartet.
