Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company and South Florida Symphony Orchestra Present Amor Brujo

Sponsored By

June 15 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Experience the electrifying fusion of passion and rhythm as the world-renowned Siudy Garrido Flamenco Company, led by acclaimed dancer and choreographer Siudy Garrido, joins forces, once again, with Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso and South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) for the return of the critically acclaimed flamenco dance-theater production, Amor Brujo. The one-night-only event occurs on Saturday, June 15, at 8 p.m., at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Knight Concert Hall.

The star-studded production also features notable screen actor and Broadway star George Akram. Akram gained recognition for his portrayal of Bernardo in the hit Broadway revival of West Side Story from 2008-2011, making history for being in the longest-running Broadway production of West Side Story and winning a GRAMMY for Best Musical Theater album. Also featured is Latin GRAMMY nominee Argentina López, and acclaimed flamenco virtuoso José Manuel Álvarez.

This evocative collaboration brings to life the passionate narrative of Candela, a grieving widow who finds new love amidst the presence of her husband\’s ghost. Based on “El Amor Brujo” by Manuel de Falla, Amor Brujo bridges the beauty of flamenco artistry and classical music, setting the stage for a mesmerizing journey.

In 2015, Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil commissioned Amor Brujo, which opened to four sold-out performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall. In 2018, a sold-out performance with South Florida Symphony Orchestra occurred at Miami’s Arsht Center.

For the 2024 performances, Siudy Garrido has restaged Amor Brujo and will premiere a new section that features flamenco compositions by José Luis de la Paz, inspired by the lead characters of \”El Amor Brujo.\” In the new section, Maestro José Luis dela Paz\’s arrangements for Spanish guitar explore flamenco styles such as “Seguirilla” and \”Guajiras,\” adding depth and richness to the performance.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
