The celebration of the centenary of the first Cante Jondo Flamenco contest will have a key presence in the 71st edition of the Granada Festival. Under the heading #granada1922, the historic contest held in Granada will be this year's Festival's main theme. Legendary flamenco artists such as Rancapino, Juan Villar, Vicente Soto, José de la Tomasa or Pepe Habichuela will visit the Festival together with very well known flamenco singers such as Marina Heredia, Mayte Martín, Jesús Méndez, Rafael de Utrera, Pedro El Granaíno or the youngest Kiki Morente. The Malandain Ballet Biarritz will recall with its choreographies the premieres of the ballets of The Firebird and The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky.

We will enjoy some current Spanish and flamenco dance performances that the Ballet Nacional de España will put on the stage of the Teatro del Generalife, or the flamenco companies of María Pagés (De Sheherazade) and Patricia Guerrero (Deliranza).

This year's resident artist will be the German violist Tabea Zimmermann without a doubt the best current performer of this instrument.

Between June 13 and July 10, over 28 days, the Granada Festival will offer a total of 96 music and dance shows (50 in the general program and 46 in the Fex).

in the dance section the festival will be present for the first time one of the most solid European companies, the Slovenian National ballet Ljubljana, with a production of Le Corsaire, choreography by José Carlos Martínez.

Bach modern, another of this year's thematic cycles, will include four artists of great international prominence who will establish a dialogue between the timeless musical universe of J.S. Bach and the contemporary scores of three seminal composers of the 20th century: György Kurtág, Olivier Messiaen and Dmitri Shostakovich.

#Brahms125 will pay a small tribute to the brilliant Hamburg composer Johannes Brahms (1833–1897), whose 125th anniversary of his death in Viena is commemorated this year.

Among the great performers who will come to Granada this year, we highlight the first of two enormous Russian talents, despite their youth: the pianist Daniil Trifonov, who has just turned 30; and the incredibly young Alexandra Dovgan, who at just 14, has captivated the most demanding audiences in Europe.
