A Cabaret Event BENISE’S “THE SPANISH GUITAR” TOO SEXY FOR INDIA What Will Storrs Think? The Spanish Guitar has been hailed as the Latin equivalent of such celebrated music and dance spectacles as Riverdance and Celtic Women; only hotter. At least that’s what India is saying. At a recent event at Jaipur Palace (The Pink City) in India, Benise’s band and dancers were escorted off the stage, as the dancers costumes were too risqué. Benise was scheduled to perform seven songs, but after the fifth song, Bamboleo, the band was told their show was over. Ironically, it was these 'sexy' costumes that won an Emmy Award in the United States. Benise and his PBS Emmy® award-winning cast bring their epic tale of music, passion, and dance to the Jorgensen stage. Brilliant choreography, orchestral pieces, and video from his travels will take you on a journey through time to exotic worlds gone by. Rarely is an artist as capable of touching the hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures, and diverse musical backgrounds as Roni Benise. Benise will give away one signed ‘limited edition’ guitar at the end of his tour. This will be administered via an enter-to-win opportunity in the lobby both nights of the performance. “The Prince of Spanish Guitar” – Beiret Downtown Magazine “Amazing” – Screen India “Fiery Entertainer…one of the most colorful shows of the season” Los Angeles Daily News “One Hot Night!” – Denver Rocky Mountain News Check out the Bamboleo video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQqkcj9ZRsM View the Cabaret Menu » Sponsored by Univision
