The 53rd edition of the Caves of Nerja International festival of Music and Dance has been presented in the Nerja Caves by the Jorge Hernández Mollar, president of the Nerja Caves Foundation, José Alberto Armijo, the mayor of Nerja, and other various dignitaries.
The concerts will take place between 17th and 22nd July 2012, and will feature the Salzburg orchestra on 17th, the flamenco spectacle of Antonio El Pipa y Lola Greco on the 18th, the Baroque orchestra of Sevilla on the 19th, the Russian Ballet on the 20th, Pasión Vega in concert on 21st, and the Comediants on the 22nd of July.
The good news this year is that you can buy and print tickets online at www.cuevadenerja.es, avoiding have to queue at the Caves themselves. Alternatively, tickets can be purchased at the Nerja Caves museum in the centre of Nerja at Plaza de España, 4, situated behind the Nerja town hall. Prices vary between 25 and 40 Euros.
Having experienced previous Nerja cave festivals, these are concerts are not to be missed given the special acoustic surroundings of the caves, and given the limited number of seats available, booking early is recommended.
If you miss any of the concerts, or tickets have been sold out, you can see a repeat, the day after, of all this year’s performances on the official Nerja Caves Foundation YouTube website:
