The gracious 16th century Mallorquin manor house Son Amar, set in the foothills of the majestic Serra de Tramuntana mountains, is a perfect setting for this terrific show.
We make our way up the elegant drive, lined by lemon and orange trees, and we are met by the guard of the manor mounted on his magnificent horse, leading the way to the famous courtyard.
The Mallorquin courtyard is as Mediterranean as the siesta and olive oil! These singular architectural spaces display a beauty and individuality that cannot be found elsewhere. In days past, this was the heart of the home, as well as a place to show hospitality to travellers and visitors, or to pay the finca's workers. This Mallorquin courtyard, with its sweeping staircase and charming chapel offered water and shade in the summer, protection against the rain in the winter and served as a place for games, gossiping and flirting, as well as a market place for the sale of goods.
No change from today then, because market stalls have been set up to display goods from Mallorquin fincas, bodegas and artisans.The atmosphere is enhanced by the artists dressed in traditional Mallorquin costumes, and by the music of a Spanish guitar.
The next stage of our visit takes us past the Tafona, (where all the olives were once pressed) to the purpose-built theatre, where the stage is set for the spectacular show “Pasión”.
Pasión - the Show
This is a story of wild, intense and passionate love - of jealousy and suffering, of happiness and joy, of a dramatic love triangle between the beautiful, headstrong gypsy Gisela, the proud and handsome Mario and the sensuous Arabic girl, Aisha.
The action is spectacular, taking us to the world where Flamenco was born, and as the Arabic roots of the island become absorbed forever into the Mallorquin culture, we reach the climax of the story and discover who will win the heart of our Spanish lover.The finale is breathtaking and unforgettable.
