We saw Manolo Carrasco in Valencia - our only experience in a bullring. I've just found a promo video of him, playing a grand on a beach.
Note the flashy long white coat, the flying fingers, the man on the horse and the woman dancing on the sand - all very erotic! Yet surprisingly innocent in the context of the show. It's as if all the elements of the erotic were somehow subsumed into the dance and the music.
