Friday night’s audience for the performance by acclaimed Arrebato Ensemble was delighted, entertained and impressed by the group’s concert.

All the colour and excitement of flamenco music and dance was on stage at the Riverside room.

The Arrebato Ensemble was brought to Narrabri by the Friends of The Crossing Theatre.


Arrebato Ensemble presents ‘contemporary flamenco with edge’.

Led by top flamenco guitarist Greg Alfonzetti and Damian de Boos-Smith (cello and guitar), the long-time collaborators are joined by Byron Mark (cajon, percussion and piano), and dancer Chachy Peñalver, founder and director of The Sydney Flamenco Studio.

This lineup created passionately moving performances combining incisive ensemble playing, masterful solos and the beauty and power of flamenco dance.

For the audience, the performance was an experience long remembered.

The Arrebato Ensemble performed again on Sunday at the Nosh Narrabri Long Lunch.

The Friday night performance was presented by the Friends of The Crossing Theatre in association with Musica Viva Australia and funding to subsidise the show comes from the Australian Government, Australia Council for the Arts and Create NSW.
