SEVILLANAS

One of the most popular events in Seville, the Feria de Abril (April Fair), is a joyous celebration held in the spring. Thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds gather for seven days dressed in traditional costumes to dance Sevillanas, view horseback parades, and enjoy delicious food and drink.

It begins with the inaugural event of the “noche del alumbrado” (night of the lighting) when all the fairground lights are lit to create a magical atmosphere.  The community gathers with excitement, waiting for the brilliant lights to commence the weeklong party.

And this is where our film comes in. 

On a beautiful spring night, Santa Barbara dancers of all ages and dance levels, musicians, and friends came together to perform Sevillanas, in a scene reminiscent of the days following the “noche del alumbrado.”  Filmed in the Santa Barbara Historical Museum courtyard, it is an enchanting celebration of dance and music. 

It’s a fitting setting, as Spanish dance and music have been an important part of the culture and everyday life of the residents of Santa Barbara for decades. The city was founded by Spain, and Spanish dance has stayed a historical cornerstone of Santa Barbara’s artistic expression. And like Sevilla, Santa Barbara celebrates its rich history and traditions through many events throughout the year.

The Feria de Abril in Sevilla is scheduled from May 1 to May 7, 2022.
