A SERIES of big name acts are lined up for performances in Adra over the coming months.
First up is the Chinese Acrobatic Circus on February 27, Adra Mayor Manuel Cortes and Culture councillor Elisa Fernandez revealed at a presentation of the preliminary municipal entertainment programme for the next three months.
The ‘Shanghai Circus World’ show at the municipal cultural centre will feature 30 artists, and promises contortionists and acrobats performing astonishing feats.
Malaga singer Diana Navarro will be in town on March 7 as part of her ‘Gira Inesperado’ tour. Expect a unique fusion of copla, flamenco and zarzuela along with styles ranging from symphonic to electronic as she belts out original compositions in her impressive voice.
The big show in April will be a two-hour tribute to the late, great singer and actress Rocio Jurado on the night of the 18th, created by her daughter Rocio Carrasco and performed by Anabel Dueñas. The show revolves around the story of Carmela, a young admirer of Rocio Jurado who auditions for a big musical about the life of the Chipiona-born artist.
“This is just an advance on the fantastic cultural agenda the Culture department had organised for the coming months”, Cortes said.
The mayor described the upcoming shows as the “starter gun for this year’s cultural programme”, and encouraged local residents to go along.
