Guitar virtuoso Benise and cast return with a brand new show - Spanish Nights!  Backed by a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, 'Spanish Nights' captures world music at its best. Benise's 'Spanish Nights' features the passion and grace of Flamenco combined with fiery Spanish guitar.  'Spanish Nights' showcases classic songs from Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, The Eagles, and combines them with Spanish guitar and Spanish dance.  Benise's love of both Spanish guitar and rock brings a fierce intensity to these new interpretations of his favorite classic anthems.  In addition to Spanish Flamenco, Benise and troupe take us on an unprecedented and epic adventure through Cuba Salsa, Brazilian Samba, Argentine Tango, and Parisian Waltz.  The show that appeals to the hearts and souls of people of all ages, cultures, and musical backgrounds.

A former street musician, Benise began composing original works with powerfully emotional arrangements that are both wild and refined, producing a sound that is as edgy and exotic as it is romantic and sensual.  A celebration of culture, love, music, and life, Benise's 'Spanish Nights' will take use to worlds both faraway and deeply personal, and remind us that hope can be the healing thread in all of our lives.
