Farruquito

"Within moments, he proved that he is one of today’s superlative dance artists."
—The New York Times

The Soraya is known for exceptional flamenco performances. This season we welcome the heir to the most renowned Gypsy flamenco dynasty, the man named the “greatest flamenco dancer of this new century” by The New York Times: “Farruquito” (Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya). Raised in Seville, he is the son of flamenco singer Juan Fernández Flores (“El Moreno”) and dancer Rosario Montoya Manzano (“La Farruca”).

Farruquito made his first international stage appearance at age four on Broadway, alongside his grandfather in the hit show Flamenco Puro. At the age of 11, young Farruquito was featured in the film Flamenco. In 1992, he shared the stage with his grandfather at the opening ceremonies of the Paralympic Games in Barcelona.
