It can be considered the perfect combination of elements of classical and Andalusian riding, connecting the spectators to the equestrian history and traditions of our city, and being our Caballos Andaluces (Andalusian Horses), heirs of those who, as a wish of King Felipe II, they were bred and raised at the Caballerizas Reales (the Royal Stables) in Córdoba. They are the true protagonists.
This equestrian show offers spectators, in approximately 90 minutes, the opportunity to see
different routines and groups, made up of 20 magnificent Spanish purebreds and 10 jinetes (men riders) and amazonas (women riders). Spectators can enjoy the spectacular trabajos a la mano,(riders working with horses in the arena, not on horseback), and the skill of doma vaquero (riding based on traditional cattle herding) and alta escuela (the highest level of discipline for both horse and rider). The elegance of the amazonas , the art of the garrochistas (rider with long spear, garrocha used in training bulls for bullfighting), and the fusion of dance and equestrian exercise are all accompanied by music which has been carefully prepared for its arena performance.
Evening Flamenco Show
The Casa Sefarad, the Palacio de Congresos or the Peña Aguilar, a must at any one of most genuine tablaos in the city.
Gets its name from the one-act opera “L´Heure Espagnole”, by the French composer Maurice Raval. The soprano Laura Moyano and the pianist Santiago Alonso are the authors of this marvelous show. Despite their youth, these two artists, have a long artistic career and present a concert with an array of musical compositions that can be framed within the vast range of what is classified as “Canción Española” (Spanish Song). This style does not describe a specific type as it groups musical compositions born under very diverse names such as Copla Escénica ot Romanza de Zarzuela, passing thru two lush musical fields of classical and popular Canción (Song).
